SNES The right way.

So while surfing the web I came across this amazing little mod.


That, My friends is an SNES controller with an SNES emulator built into it, Plug it in Via USB and you can bring your Super Nintendo anywhere USB is available. Now I think that  nintendo should hop on this band wagon and release all of its older systems in this fashion, or at least something similar, thoughts?

Quote from Hack a Day:

"Want to take your SNES emulation to your friend’s house? [Chris] worked out a way to fit the important parts inside of an original Super Nintendo controller. He removed the case from a 4GB thumb drive as well as a USB hub. Using a RetroZone kit he gave the controller a USB interface. By soldering the thumb drive and RetroZone board directly to the hub he’s reduced the package down to just one cable. Everything fits inside the controller case and now when you plug it into the computer you can fire up the ROMs you copied from your original cartridges that are stored on the thumb drive."
