iPod-NES August 5, 2007

Posted by reverseengineer in Because You Can, Hacks, Hardware, iPods.

Speaking of remotes, the ever-interesting and engrossing website Instructables has come up with a cool use for your old Nintendo Entertainment System controller gathering dust in the attic – use it as a remote for your iPod!

It’s only for 3G and 4G iPods, though. The site has a step-by-step instruction sequence (as well they should, since the official site name is Instructables: Step By Step Instructions), and be forewarned, it requires a bit of soldering and delicate work which looks hard even for DIY fanatics, but it is interesting as a little side project for a lazy weekend afternoon.

Just think, after you finish it and get it to work, you can say you can still operate your iPod even if you were two feet farther away than you normally are when you control it. With a NES controller! Who needs those fancy Apple-made iPod remotes anyway?

Details and step-by-step instructions here.
