Here is a nifty way to put those old NES controllers (or any other old gaming device) back to good use. A DIYer names lonesurfer magnificently gave an old NES Controller a new lease on life, reusing and making it part of a new nightlight which should be dandy for use in your home.
The thing about it is that it becomes not only a neat way to emphasize the controller but make it a neat looking piece that should light up when you need to in the darkest hours of your home thanks to the LEDs which surround it and give off a functional and reliable glow.
The controller is encased in a clear resin shell, where the circuit is triggered when the controller is tilted.
Further ecofriendly features that the night light has is that it doesn’t need batteries to be replaced ever so often since it is powered using solar energy.
