    Mike Tyson Finally Beats Glass Joe in Punch Out!!, Humanity Redeemed

    Beast of a Nintendo Emulator Looks Like an NES, Is Four Systems In One

    Emulation is a great way to get your jones when you're really fixin' for some old-timey goodness. But while it's incredibly easy to download an emulator on your computer, it's not quite the same; there's no console and no controller. Redditor woolydawg5's Ultimate Nintendo Gaming Machine solves those problems. Built into an original NES, woolydawg's device is actually a computer that can emulate the NES, SNES, Game Boy, and the N64. For extra fun, it also supports the original controllers, so you can get that authentic feel, even when it looks like you're playing Super Mario 64 on an NES.

The NES Lunchbox has you covered. Complete with a sandwich slot and handy controller handle, the NES Lunchbox will handle all of your carrying needs until you grow up and sell your soul (just like daddy did) and have to trade your lunchbox full of GoGurt for a briefcase full of broken dreams and silent, midnight tears.

    The lunchbox is the brain child of redditor Masennus who embarked on the project once his NES had stopped working. Best possible use for a dead NES? I think so. More pictures after the jump.
