Have you ever had one of those silly days? You know what I'm talking about; a day where everything is fun and silly and totally creative. On a recent silly day I was in a meeting with a coworker. I don't recall how the conversation began, but somehow we started talking about the show Big Bang Theory and all the cool belt buckles one of the characters wears. My coworker said that he "would totally wear" a belt buckle made out of a Nintendo game controller. But not just any controller, it had to be the iconic NES controller. Without even thinking about it, I piped up and said "Hey! I'll make one for you!" The conversation got sillier and the ideas got bigger. And before I knew it, I had volunteered to make not one, but TWO belt buckles—one for my coworker and one for his son.
About a week later, a couple of controllers showed up on my desk! I squealed to myself, "This is going to be so much FUN!"
What started out as a silly conversation turned into a fun side project!
Jealous? Dying to make your own Nintendo game controller belt buckle? Here's the quick scoop on how to put one of these together:
Think of all the gadgets that can be re-purposed into something wearable. Now I'm trying to figure out how to make a remote control into a wearable AND usable bracelet! What are you going to make?
