VoodooWare transforms an original 8-bit NES into a fully functional lunch box. Maybe Sega, PlayStation, and Xbox versions will be next.

Now you can share your childhood gaming memories with your children, thanks to the vintage Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) lunch boxes refurbished by VoodooWares and sold on Etsy. Each lunch box costs $45 and is salvaged from irreparable NES consoles with their parts emptied and fresh coats of paint. There's even an option to customize the exterior and velvet interior with your own name and messages for an additional $30.
It's heartening to see these old consoles getting a second lease on life. While they're at it, maybe VoodooWares could introduce Sega, PlayStation and Xbox versions in the near future.
