Don't Miss: This How to find Fingerlings in Stock

Until Nintendo enters the mobile phone market, this NES controller turned Nokia cell phone will have to satiate the Nintendophiles of the world. Sam Garfield took the fanboy-pleasing task of completely stripping out an old-school NES controller and molding his Nokia 3200 to fit inside.

Quote: "The buttons were a special challenge. Each button has to be dremeled down so it fits flush inside the controller case. This involves cutting the red buttons off at the tab, and cutting the entire back off the directional buttons (the biggest pain of the whole project)."Sam posted the project on DIY Happy, so naturally there is a lengthy, though not very descriptive narrative about how to actually perform this mod yourself.

Or if you just want to check out the rough-looking (as Sam calls it, "version 1.0") NES phone, there's a video of it as well.
