The Model G1 is a posable desktop NES clone that was inspired by the traditional Anglepoise lamp

Seattle-based Dave Nunez has designed a mashup of a Nintendo gaming system with the Anglepoise lamp. The prototype (called the “NESPoise”), completed last December using a MakerBot Replicator 2 and some leftover parts from other projects, has now been developed into the “Rabbit Engineering Model G1.” After three concentrated months of product development, this NES clone housed in an Anglepoise-inspired case is now available to purchase fully assembled.

The Model G1 enables people to play their old 8-bit Nintendo games in style. The handmade mid-century-style desktop machine can play almost any NES cartridge using an arcade-spec joystick and buttons. It was designed using open-source constructive-scene geometry modelling software, interpreted by a 3D printer and CNC router to produce the parts.
