Giant NES controller as coffee table, storage

Kyle Downes creates a massive working NES controller that can also be used as a coffee table (with glass) and opens up to reveal storage for games

20-year-old Australian Kyle Downes just finished building his most recent Ultra Awesome project: A massive working Nintendo controller that doubles as a coffee table and triples as a storage chest.

Built from a desire to improve G4TV's similar design, Kyle printed out a picture of an NES controller on A4 sized paper for the measurements and cut the whole thing out of 4mm Medium Density Fiberboard.

The result is every gamer's dream. It's another tribute to retro tech and the perfect piece of furniture to match your race car bed and sofa cushion forts.
