Here’s a cool little recycled object made from an old NES controller. All they did was split the two outer parts up, take out all the wires and circuits from the inside, glue the buttons in place and attached a pair of tiny hinges on the back.
And now you have a cool little storage box. You really can’t store too much in there since it’s not too big but it would make a real neat desktop storage bin for small objects.
