Check page 8 for a big update!  I've been featured in Nintendo Power magazine! Cheesy


So one day I picked up an NES Zapper (gun) and went "woah, that would make a cool lamp!" So... after playing around...



I gutted one... who knew this is what they looked like inside?



Then I stumbled around for ideas for the base and shade.  A regular cartridge was too small a base, so I measured one and made a 1.5 scale replica out of cardboard, and screwed the gun to it.  I weighted it with stones, and then tackled the shade.



I picked up a $2 shade at the re-store, a pack of fun foam, and voila!  After hours and hours of cutting pixellated shapes, I was done!  A little dab of glue to secure the shade, and... ta dah!





I didn't get any shots of it lit up, unfortunately, but it does work! I just didn't have a decent bulb. Sad

I love this!  You should definitely put a picture up when you get a decent light bulb.

Thank you all for the quick replies!

I just had to go with Duck Hunt, being the only game I remembered *ever* using the Zapper for. I'm so glad I did; a friend was trying to convince me to do a Mario shade, but it just wouldn't fit as well! Wink
