Sam writes “Relive the better days with this NES Controller that has been modified into a cellphone. Everything is original – the buttons and casing. This modification uses a Nokia 3200 radio and electronics because it’s so easy to get the casing off and get to the good stuff. This is probably the only phone I’d ever wear on one of those nerdy hip-holsters.”Link.

    I can’t believe this guy beat me to the punch! I had a broken 3200 sitting around, the screen is completely done (glass cracked), so i’ts going shuffle style, and I hijacked the NES buttons and did away with the dialing since i’m turning it into more of a novelty phone with the A button the pickup button, the B for hanging up, and the select and start buttons the key combo for locking/unlocking. up and down left and right will control 4 speed dials and i’m hoping to make it all fit neatly back in with no tape. I’m documenting it pretty hardcore, so expect the full write up/instructable soon.

    The Utility System(patent pending)for motorized wheelchairs.

    I am seeking funding, investors in or purchasers of the manufacturing and patent rights for the new Utility System(patent pending)for motorized wheelchairs. Following extensive consultation with DME providers the conclusions reached were that there was no ability to use multiple accessories on a motorized wheelchair simultaniously, there was a lack of an easily stow-able utility tray, and that there was no functional and effective basket for daily living activities in the home or for shopping. These consultations were as a result of and followed five years of work as a provider to the handicapped. During this time I received literally hundreds of requests, suggestions and recommendations for such a utility system
    from the disabled.

    Unlike other assemblies that offer merely a single accessory installation at a time the new Utility System (patent pending) allows for multiple accessories to be installed and used simultaneously. For example a customer may employ the utility tray with attachable shopping basket while breathing oxygen from a bottle in rear-mounted sturdy tank holder. Also, this tank holder may carry a cane or umbrella in the back of the vehicle. For safety a rear-view mirror can be quickly be applied to this system. As the customer’s needs change the individual accessories can be added to the system.

    The new Utility System (patent pending) is compatible with industry standard accessory housings. This will enable the company to offer this innovative product to the current industry customer base. In addition, the convenience offered by the Utility System’s numerous available accessory configurations should accomodate a wide variety of needs of millions of disabled users of motorized wheelchairs and scooters. Please contact me for PHOTOGRAPHS.

    Sincerely,

    P.S. I can discuss investment or purchase options that include a very attractive $30 million tax shelter.
