Mod your old NES into a DVD player

Yes! This is awesome. Of course, anything related to modding an NES is awesome. Personally, I don’t watch DVDs that much — or if I did, the player’s guts wouldn’t fit into a Nintendo. Still, this is a cool mod and if you have a non-working NES sitting around (that you don’t feel like fixing), it won’t run you more than $40 or $50.

Now if I were modding an NES I’d see what I could do about mounting a hard drive onto a cartridge interface and see if I could pass ROM information through — every NES game ever, on one cartridge! Sadly I’m not quite crafty enough for that. Still, a man has to have a dream. [via MAKE:blog]
