1Up Your Cooking Game With The NES Cartridge Cutting Board


This is a wood NES cartridge cutting board made by Etsy shop Cutting Boredom. Ooh, CuttingBoredom — I see what you did there. And I like it. The boards start at $40 and come in walnut, maple, mahogany, or cherry. They do NOT come packaged in a Nintendo, nor do you clean them by blowing in the end. Just saying. Full disclosure.

Old NES Cartridges Refurbished Into Boozy Flasks


Over twenty years ago the Nintendo Entertainment System was the console to have. Fast forward to 2013, cartridges are considered ancient in the gaming world with CDs and downloadable software replacing these once great rectangular relics. With technology constantly evolving, what’s a gamer to do with their old NES games? Turn them into flasks, of course.nes-flasks-2

Some fellas over at Ink Whiskey have designed the perfect way to pay homage to your beloved NES games, while also making them into practical flasks. The Ink Whiskey Concealable Entertainment flask is adorned with parody labels of some of Nintendo’s most famous games. The cartridge is about the size of your run-of-the-mill flask and slips easily into a back pocket. These dudes even took it to the next level and decided to conceal the cap as part of the cartridge.

Ink Whiskey developed a Kickstarter campaign for this throwback project and with less than two days left to go they’re already overfunded. Their website states that the store will be open soon, so you too can sip some Grey Goose out of a Castle Vodka flask. If you just can’t wait, you can guarantee yourself first dibs on an Ink Whiskey Concealable Entertainment Flask by supporting Ink Whiskey’s Kickstarter for $15.

NES Lunchbox

While I’ve yet to catch this item at Hipster novelty and clothing shops in the United States just yet, they’re bound to take note of this amazing lunchbox sooner or later. Made by Etsy user SealCouch, this one-of-a-kind lunchbox was made out of a broken Nintendo Entertainment System (NES), making use of the unit’s shell, an interior lined with vinyl tape and a high quality suitcase handle. Best part about the unit? The front cartridge opening is still intact, allowing you to slip a sandwich or cookie in without having to unlatch the front.
