Interior design can be a challenge, especially when your passions in life aren't easily translated into creative and unique home decor. Gaming culture certainly produces its fair share of posters and wall decals, granted, but what if you're looking for something a little more elegant? What if you...

Console controllers meet iPhone, but not in the way you'd think

Etsy artisans GeekUnique have found a unique use for old console controllers: iPhone/iPod docks. The husband and wife team guts the old pads and retrofits them with official Apple sync cables. On offer: NES, PS1, N64 -- even a Zapper! They also mod game carts and ... 8-track tapes?...

We heart these USB drives made from GBA carts

8Bit Memory, the Etsy merchant who first caught our attention with its external hard drives disguised as NES cartridges, has rolled out another re-use for a proprietary Nintendo storage medium: Game Boy Advance cartridges retrofitted as USB flash drives.

Yoshi and Kirby decals eat your laptop logo

Let's all just agree that the above laptop decal is awesome. Created by LapTatt and available on Etsy for a paltry $14, it's just about the greatest Nintendo-themed laptop decal we've ever seen (not that there have been too many). Admittedly, it seems designed with the Apple logo in mind --...

The NES purse: Worth pursuing?

Etsy user inhope has crafted a work of art. We say that not only because her enormous NES controller purse is aesthetically dreamy, but because we couldn't possibly imagine bringing it into the wild and reckless life we lead without worrying it'd be destroyed. $39.99 nets you this beast of a bag...

DS Daily: Case couture

When you're looking for a case for your DS, or another non-gameplay-oriented accessory (strap, screen cleaner, sticker, etc.), do you tend toward mass-produced products, like the generally excellent ones from Hori or Keys Factory, or the bizarre puffy ones from Tomy? Or do you prefer a...

Sleeping with Space Invaders

It's times like these that we wish we had $250 to burn on a quilt. Even if we can't buy this, though, we can sure admire it (along with many other Space Invaders themed items). The quilt might not have the same explosive color as Space Invaders Extreme, but it sure makes the classic icons look all...

Cases Critterized

Most DS Lite cases are themed on something. These particular cases are themed just fine, but it's nothing we've seen before. Etsy craftsperson filmfatale has gone for a generic "critters" design. Someone might filch the idea and use critters in an upcoming game ... which would spawn a disturbing...
