NES Giant Flash Drive & USB Port

NES Giant Flash Drive & USB Port

The other day we were thinking about just how many hours we have spent playing the NES. In all fairness we retained our classic system much longer than neighborhood peers, so perhaps that is why our time spent playing is a little high. Whether or not the number of hours is equal to our proclivity towards a career in IT, we do think it plays a huge role in the amount of love we give towards DIY projects with the classic system. That being said, here is another NES DIY project...

Another great NES DIY project from Instructables user Fungus Amungus aka Ed Lewis, this one turns your old non-working system into a flash drive and USB port.

To make this project you will need an NES, a game cartridge, USB flash drive, USB extension cable, and a Dremel tool. The project is very simple and with the right tools, it is also rather quick.

While it is decidedly not the most space efficient way to use a flash drive, it is fun. For those with gigantic desks looking to rock a little classic gaming pride, this project could quite possibly be the perfect desk accessory.
