Any true gamer still has the original Nintendo in their possession. That is assuming they were born early enough to acquire one. The system is without a doubt one of the most iconic and pivotable when it comes to gaming today. Sure, there were gaming consoles before its time, but none were so instrumental in shaping how we game today and nor did any console before its arrival provide such a rich graphical and gameplay experience.
To bring that nostalgia home, literally, Etsy builder The Bohemian Workbench has built this to scale oversized NES controller coffee table. They offer two versions: one that is just a table and one that is fully functional. That’s right, fully functional. It comes with a glass top that you’ll need to remove when you’re ready to get your game on, which is a nice touch if you don’t want sandwich crumbs or beer run off spilling in between the controllers.
Each table is made to order and rightfully so at $3500, though there is one being given away on DudeIWantThat.com right now. That said, you can even order a USB version if you wanna hook it up to your HTPC and they’re currently looking into a Wii compatible version, or perhaps even a Wii like coffee table, though we’re not sure how viable that is.
The dimensions of the NES Controller Coffee Table are 42″ length x 18.25″ width x 18″ height. It’s made from composite material or premium woods – just depends on what you want to spend.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
