One reason that the NES Zapper, even in orange, is superior to the Wii Zapper
: it makes an attractive lamp. Craftster user fluffypants happened upon one of the clangy gun controllers and, somehow
, saw the potential for a lamp. A real Duck Hunt
cartridge would have been too small to function as a sturdy base, so she made an imitation NES cartridge from cardboard and affixed it to the Zapper lamp.
As if turning controllers
didn't impress us enough, fluffypants turned a store-bought shade into a faithful 3D Duck Hunt
scene with layers of cut foam. In fact, the shade is so awesomely Duck Hunt
that the actual lamp seems a bit like overkill.
