Coffee tables are a primary fixture in most homes, with many people taking them for granted. However, if you come across a coffee table that is puts together geek function and form, it is another story altogether. Take this fully functional Nintendo controller coffee table for example. It really does look AND function as a coffee table, but it also looks AND works as a Nintendo controller!
Nothing more really needs to be said, yes? For the sake of detail-hungry people, however, let’s share more information about the Nintendo controller coffee table.
It is up for sale at The Bohemian Workbench on Etsy for a whopping $3,500. Yeah, that is NOT cheap, but if you think about what it can do, you might be tempted to part with your money. More so, the fact that there is only (currently) one of these in existence kind of justifies the price. Emphasis on kind of.
And if you look at just how much fun this woman seems to be having, you really might get that little push…
The Nintendo controller coffee table is made from high quality wood: maple, mahogany, and walnut. It also has dovetail joinery (whatever that means) and mid-century modern legs (as long as it makes the table stable!).
When you want to use the table as a “real” table, there is a glass cover that can be placed on top. That makes the surface flat and stable, not to mention the fact that the glass protects the buttons below. Come gaming time, you simply have to remove the glass top and star mashing those buttons! Yeah, that can be a pain, but you can’t have it all, can you?
Dimensions: 42 inches long, 18.25 inches wide, and 18 inches high. It should fit even in a relatively small condo!
Here’s some good news: the guys who made the table are working on different models. They are also looking at different pricing schemes for those who think that $3,500 is too steep a price. Get in touch with them via Etsy to see what can be arranged.
