There are only two types of people in this world: Those who hate steampunk with all their might and those who love it. I'm somewhere in between both groups, but I can appreciate a good ol' steampunked gadget every once in a while if it catches my eye.
This steampunked top loader NES video gaming system might not be the shiniest console out there but if it's shiny enough to get a kid who's already into gaming even more into gaming, then it's definitely cool enough in my books.
What you see up there is the work of an exceptionally cool uncle who took it upon himself to steampunk his old top-loading NES gaming system for his nephew who loved both video games and steampunk. Here are a couple of in the making photos of the console, just in case you might want to build your own someday.
