Nerds Rejoice! The Nintendo Controller Coffee Table Is Real
Could it be that three of the things we love most have come together in one incredibly awesome piece of furniture? Geekery, gadgetry, and the DIY spirit together at last?! Yes. It's true. And this magic has materialized in the form of a fully functional Nintendo Controller Coffee Table.
Made from maple, mahogany and walnut by Charles Lushear of BohoWorkbench.com, this table fully functions as a Nintendo NES controller, primed and ready for days upon days of Mario Kart, Street Fighter, and Zelda. There is a retractable cord underneath for hooking up to your Nintendo, and can be made USB-capable if requested. It'll set you back a cool $3,500 but the combination of personal joy and nerd street cred is pretty priceless.
Since you won't always want to be gaming, it comes with a solid glass top complemented by mid century modern legs, giving it the essence of Geek Chic. We can't help but wonder what other awesome controllers, remotes, and gadgets could be turned into fully functional pieces of furniture.
If you're looking for the ultimate gift for your favorite child of the 80s or 90s, your search is over. And if you can't fork over the $3,500, head over to Dude I Want That for a sweet giveaway!
