Here is another potential item for the retro-gaming lovers who want to put shelved gaming consoles to good use. Michael Smalley put together a magnificently looking lamp called the NES Advantage Joystick Desk Lamp, a DIY project that should once again give you ideas.
Michael removed the joystick on the console and replaced it with a 40-watt light bulb and minimalist lampshade. While there is no word on the functionalities of the buttons, the lamp does have an on and off switch. Another “recycle your furniture“ you may want to undertake!
