NES USB Port with Cartridge Flash Drive is Hilariously Counterintuitive

Instructables user Ed Lewis turned an old Nintendo Entertainment System into an external USB port and an NES game cartridge into an 8 gigabyte flash drive. The unit only features one USB port, to which the modified game cart connects. Anyone who has ever opened up an old NES cartridge knows that the internal makeup is simple, which is why Lewis was able to easily remove the game’s board and replace it with a flash drive. He modified the actual console by cutting a hole in the middle of the cartridge connector big enough for the flash drive to fit into, then cut another hole at the back of the console for the USB cable. All in all, Lewis created a hilariously unportable, portable USB hub and flash drive.
