NES Zelda Cartridge Converted to a Hard Drive Enclosure

Some months ago, a friend of mine grabbed a bunch of NES cartridges from a thrift store with the intention of converting them into hard drive enclosures. If there’s one thing geeks love, it’s re-purposing old stuff into new stuff. I’m not sure if he got around to making the enclosures, but today I found this really awesomely done enclosure made from The Legend of Zelda for the NES.

This cartridge has sold out since I spotted it, but the seller does have several other cartridge-turned-enclosures. Sadly none look as great as this one, even though a great game was compromised to make it. Would you buy a hard drive enclosed in an old NES game, or do you think it’s sacrilege?

    That is the coolest thing ever! (Okay, one of the coolest.) I want one.

    Do you have to blow in it first before it will work?
