The lengths to which some people will go in order to play games in ways the publisher didn't intend truly boggles the mind sometimes. Here's Mario 64 running on an EVO HTC, with a special controller that utilizes the Wii Remote, Classic Console and steering wheel peripheral.

This misshapen chimera has been dubbed the EVOtainment System by its creator, Jack Malone. He took a NERF Wii steering wheel, drilled it out and made space for the Classic Controller, bolstered it with a strip of 3M Dual Lock, added a GPS mount for the EVO, which is connected to the Wiimote via Bluetooth. 

Just ... yeah ... okay.
