Modded NES and SNES Controlers for the Wii

wiire-with-nes.jpg

I love mods like this. Take your old hardware and make it new again. Mark Feldman has taken the NES and SNES controllers and made them wireless so they can work with the Wii. Mark opened up the controllers and put in a wireless transmitter and an iPod battery to make this work. He then used a GameCube cable and a wireless reciever to hook up to the Wii.

I know it is more involved than how I explained it. But the point is that this is a cool way to have that authentic gaming experience using the Virtual Console on the Wii. If I knew how to do that kind of stuff, and had a Wii, I would make myself some of these controllers.
