Lamp made from old-school Nintendo Zapper


This is a cool looking lamp, yes? What’s even cooler is that the girl who put this together made that Duck Hunt cartridge out of cardboard because a standard Nintendo cartridge didn’t provide enough stability.

"A regular cartridge was too small a base, so I measured one and made a 1.5 scale replica out of cardboard, and screwed the gun to it.  I weighted it with stones, and then tackled the shade.

I picked up a $2 shade at the re-store, a pack of fun foam, and voila!  After hours and hours of cutting pixellated shapes, I was done!  A little dab of glue to secure the shade, and… ta dah!"

That shade’s pretty phenomenal. Nice work, young lady. Nice work indeed.
