Whether or not you’re a packrat or simply love old games and the memories they bring back, being able to use old game consoles or accessories for new projects brings a sort of accomplishment or pride in knowing you’re getting a second use out of an object that was destined for the trash heap. The gadget in question is that of old NES catridges by adding in a bit of new school internal storage.

If you are the type that needs several external hard drives and requires that they be small and portable, external drives constructed out of old NES catridges seems like a pretty reasonable idea. If you have the catridges laying around, that’s one less thing you have to spend money on. Not to mention, how insanely cool it will be to whip out classics such as Super Mario Brothers, Zelda, and other golden oldie favorites only to reveal their hidden innards give them a fresh lease on life.

Ranging in sizes that come in: 250 GB, 320 GB, 400 GB, 500 GB, and 750 GB, any and everyone should be able to find a size that suits them just perfectly.

If these little new age wonders have caught your fancy, stopping by 8BitMemory’s Etsy shop will lead you on the path to retro goodness. Such cool combinations of old and new will set you back more than your average external however with the entry level 250 GB option ringing in at $119.99.

  • ** For a limited time, all orders of the 250 GB option will be upgraded to the 320 GB option for free! Hurry before the offer runs out!

Of course, if the cost is a little much for you or you simply want to get your own hands dirty, you can always take up this little venture on your own.
