Nintendo Entertainment System NES System Console Controller Cartridge Game Retro DIY Hack How To Project Mod Modification Belt NESBelt Buckle BeltBuckle

The NES controller can be turned into a really cool retro style belt buckle! This is an awesome project to do because its easy, and you get a great looking belt after! Making it does not require any knowledge of electrical circuits or soldering at all. I like this project, because the controller still works, so you can still press all the buttons! There is a detailed guide on how to make one, so I hope you try this project!
