The NES Controller Skin for iPhone 4, because yesterday's stuff is cooler than today's stuff

Want to know something strange? As a kid, I used to pretend that my NES controller was a phone. I’d sit there, cord dangling with the grey back of the controller pressed against my ear, talking to myself.

With this, I can pretend my phone is an NES controller*. That, friends, is the circle of life.

Sure, this vinyl decal may be jam-packed with trademark infringement. Fortunately, Nintendo doesn’t usually care until someone makes a big deal about it — so shhh.

Printed on pro-grade vinyl with some decent ink, the seller says you should be able to get 5-7 years of use out of it. Considering that we’ll all have iPhone 4000 modules implanted into our cerebral cortexes by that point, I’d say the 5 bucks they’re charging is a fair price. You can find it on Etsy here.

* I’ll probably still talk to myself.
