We’ve seen plenty of weird, funny, and cute controllers and stuff themed after the classic NES, but this is the first time we see a working plushie. This is the dawn of the hug & play age!
There’s a plethora of things you can do with a good NES-themed controller on your computer, but Adafruit’s Becky Stern created something different. By combining a Flora Arduino-compatible with the cutest plushie fabric, the result is a plushie that can be used to play the classics. And the best part about it is that she even made a tutorial so you can create your own. Need a better excuse to learn how to stitch? Because this is the real thing.
