Mysterious 3D NES Game Console Model

If you were to dig into the history of gaming, you would most probably run into the NES or the Nintendo Entertainment System in the first place, as the 8-bit video game console which was released by Nintendo became a cultural phenomenon and was released under different names in different regions.

In the West, it was called the NES, while in the far eastern countries like Vietnam, China, Singapore and Philippines, it was called the Family Computer or Famicom, and in India, it was called by the name of Tata Famicom. With such a rich history, you can only naturally expect people to dedicate much of their artistic skills and creative juices to design models that glorify the NES.

Nintendo Monkey has uploaded the pics of a cute and really quaint “3D NES”, similar to the mini Lego NES. There is virtually no information about it and the artist has not written anything under the description, leaving the viewer or observer to deduce their own conclusions. The 3D NES seems to have been made from black, white, gray and pink buttons which have artistically been arranged to resemble the Famicom or NES.

While there isn’t more to it in the picture, it gives a glimpse into the artist’s mind and his/her love for the world’s first and most successful console ever. Meanwhile, people all across the globe have begun to find a revived interest in the NES and its history. We have been great fans of the NES too, and thus we had written about the NES Retro Mini X Console. I am sure you would like to read about that as well!

    I recognize the materials used for this NES model. It’s a craft that uses small plastic “beads” that are layed out to form images. When ironed, the edges of the plastic melt together and the piece becomes solid. That’s how the art was made. In this case, the 6 walls were made separately, then assembled. They used an interlocking “brick” style pattern to connect the walls. You can see the side ways beads that they are bowed into a non perfect cylinder shape from the heat of the iron. This also helps to keep the walls interlocked. It does not appear additional heat was applied, so this art piece could be disassembled into the 6 flat walls again.
