Interesting Coffee Tables: The Nintendo Coffee Table
You can find just about anything on the internet these days and I wanted to prove it by doing a series of Hubs here on Hubpages all about the most random thing I could think of: coffee tables. So, please enjoy the Interesting Coffee Tables hub series all about some of the wackiest, unique, and interesting looking coffee tables I’ve been able to find on the internet.
We’ll start off the series with a coffee table design related to one of those things that most internet browsers probably find appealing: video games. Over at the Ultra-Awesome blog Kyle Downes decided to rig up a giant oversized NES (that’s the original Nintendo system, folks) controller and turn it into a massive “playable” glass coffee table for his game room.
Kyle has built himself a coffee table like no other. It is an oversized rectangular glass coffee table with a storage bin underneath the lid. The lid in this case happens to be a mammoth Nintendo game pad with workable buttons that can be plugged into (with a little bit of wire work) an NES game system and used to play games. He’s actually got a video of him and one of his friends playing the original Mario game on it. The thing is so big that they need one person to work the directional buttons and another to hit the A and B buttons.
Having a coffee table like this one in your game room, or hell even in your living room, is a sure fire way to get noticed by all of your gaming friends.
What do you think of the Nintendo Glass Coffee Table design? Would you like having it in your living room or game room? Do you have a coffee table design in your home that you think tops this kind of crazy idea? Let me know in the comments.
