Must-see: NES controller hacked for iPad games

Here’s a sweet video combining together some 80′s gaming nostalgia with a modern twist. Always wondered what an ipad game controlled with an NES gamepad looks like? It’s your lucky day.

Joven from ProtoDojo, with help from his team have managed to hook up an Apple iPad to a NES controller using conductive arms that touch the iPad screen at specific points to control iOS game Reckless Racers.

OK, so it’s more than a little fiddly for anyone to assemble and whip up for a quick fix of Apple-flavoured console-alike fun, but it still looks neat.
