Man Invents NES-Playing “Game Boy Burger”

Can I have one?

While there’s been your fair share of fan-made portable NES machines/adapters, surely none were as kooky as Love Hulten’s Game Boy Burger: a wooden button-equipped burger. As featured on Kotaku, the Burger’s his latest experiment with natural wood. (He previously constructed a multi-purpose game console designed as a boom box)  Before you ask, no, you don’t fit actual cartridges inside — as seen below, an in-built ROM selection hosts an NES library. (Speaking of which, is that a Sega Genesis/Mega Drive list we spot on the thumbnail?)

Mr. Hulten also shared behind-the-scenes footage depicting the design process. Kotaku describes it as multi-layered wood shaped, then sanded, then glued, then painted before being attached by hinges for wires to connect the two. A plastic cheese layer’s then carved with holes (like actual cheese!) for the buttons to fit through.

Sadly, the Game Boy Burger is one-of-a-kind, and Mr. Hulten has no plans on manufacturing more for sale. But Mr. Hulten’s passion has produced other pricey game-playing replicas on his website, so if you’ve got the cash, why not stop by? (And if you don’t, he still maintains an impressive gallery of custom works. Just between you and me, I think I could use some Milk on Wheels…)
