    So, check this out first

    okay, good?

    alright, so i saw this and decided i would guess it is a wii-mote capable NES cartridge.

    then i thought, well hey, if he isn't making it, I should!

    so... i'm going to do this over summer if ben heck isn't already


    also, I am going to be using old NES consoles as wii-mote chargers, because that would be tight as hell.

    it will look something like this

    but with an old nes

    get 4 old Nintendo's lined up, with cartridges in 'em :)

    it's gonna be pimp

    photoshop renditions coming soon (i hope!)

    here's the plan

    [​IMG]

    this is the direction (sorry, only for righties so far) to be held for remote type action

    [​IMG]

    this is the direction for using it on it's side (hopefully keys aren't backwards or can be swapped or whatnot)

    [​IMG]

    The back. just thrown together, maybe the batteries can be made to not stick out?



    the plan is to have it charge out the front with battery leads coming to the front of the cartridge. the IR beam thing will be there too, tons of space in that opening



    so what do you think? think i would be worth my time?

    It would be cooler to make the cartridge plays nes roms instead. I would never destroy a zelda cartridge.

    the gold cart was because it's my favorite, i would prolly do it to a stock cartridge when i do it. maybe once i get all worked out i'll do it on zelda carts, but i just think the layout would be so sick
