Look I drink...

but I also love cool tech gadgets. Awhile back Aaron brought you coverage of a NES/iPod mod and I think I  have found you another one. As soon as I caught this, I knew that el Dtoid comunidad would want it. Hell, I want one of these bad, but I have a few problems. Here is list of what you will need:

IC sockets, NES Controller, Dremel with a cutting bit, Sharp knife, Soldering iron and small gauge electrical solder, Desoldering pump, Flush cutters, or wire cutters, Needlenose pliers, Standard Ethernet (CAT-5) cabling, small gauge wire, 3G or 4G iPod, and plug for the remote jack on the iPod.

What is the problem you ask? I only recognize, "NES controller," and "Sharp knife." Luckily, the awesome people at Indestructables have made a full walkthrough with pictures for all of us noobs. It may look like robot porn, but I assure you, if you follow it step by step, you will have your very own NES controller iPod remote. Click here full the full walkthrough.

There are a ton of other cool things on the site, so be sure to check it out. They also have a awesome robot mascot that is maybe a tech cousin of our own Mr. Destructoid. Be sure to send in your pics if you put one together.
