Alright, so it's not actually a real mouse, just a foam prototype. In fact, we can't see anyone using something that looks as uncomfortable as this thing does. But what is it about the original Nintendo Entertainment System that has inspired such devotion and allegiance? We've seen sneakers , coffee tables , and MP3 players all paying their respects to the Nintendo original.

Even the Wii itself is a throwback to the NES. Take a look down at the console while it's laying flat. Notice something? Yep, it's the same exact shape as an NES controller port.
