NES in a Cartridge (Image courtesy Instructables)
By Andrew Liszewski

You can say what you want about cartridge-based consoles, but I’d like to see someone cram an Xbox 360 or a PS3 into a DVD one day. Inspired by Ben Heck’s creations and a modder named Kotomi, Instructables contributor dany32412 used an ‘NES on a chip’ (NOAC) harvested from a Chinese Famicom knockoff to create his own retro homage to 80’s gaming. And what’s an electronic homebrew creation these days without an Arduino mixed in there somewhere, so here one is used to interface the standard NES controllers with the NOAC. It doesn’t look like the easiest mod for a novice, but his Instructable provides enough steps and instructions for an experienced modder to build their own.
