…The Wii has guts?


We’ve seen the insides of balloon animals, Lego minifigs, Dunnys and gummy bears, but what about game consoles?

According to Anatowii (which looks suspiciously like a Nintendo advertisement) they look a little something like the image above.

Now, I’m not quite sure where the batteries go in there, but it’s good to know that when you can’t get past that level in Mario and you throw your controller against the wall, it feels your pain too.

…Antoinette J. Citizen can make you feel like Super Mario?

Super Mario Room

Antoinette J. Citizen created art that just about anyone that grew up during the Nintendo Era can appreciate: A working Level 1-1 Super Mario Bros. room complete with interactive question mark boxes and bricks that featured actual Mario sound effects.

Sadly, just being in the room did not give you an Italian brother, allow you to spit fireballs, or kill turtles by jumping on them (though I guess that last one is always possible) but it probably would make you feel pretty super.

…The Geekini has buttons in all the right places?


I’m honestly surprised that John Nouanesing’s Geekini is not something that already exists.

The concept bikini, which features strategically placed buttons from the original Nintendo control pad, is sure to send any geek’s heart fluttering, and is a definite win at the next gaming convention.

…Bowser’s minions are not happy?

Bowser\'s Minions

Any Super Mario fan will definitely appreciate the humor in Bowser’s Minions.

For me, the sounds and the long lost characters brought back flashbacks of childhood gaming, and I loved the idea of Mario’s enemies grouping together and revolting against the restrictions placed upon them by Bowser/Nintendo to keep the game playable.

Definitely another CollegeHumor classic.

…The Fami-Card is a Nintendo in a cartridge?

Nintendo In A Cartridge

Here’s an interesting idea: Take an NES cartridge, rip out the guts and replace them with an NES console.

Then you can play Nintendo by simply plugging your cartridge into another cartridge!


The end result, called a Fami-Card, features an NES cartridge slot, power and reset buttons, a pair of joystick ports, and composite video and stereo audio outputs.
