Duck Hunt lamp by estranged-illusions Duck Hunt lamp by estranged-illusions
This all started when I saw a Zapper and went 'hmm, bet that would make a cool lamp...' so I gutted one and wired it up- next was a 1.5 scale replica of a game cartridge for the base (made from cardboard, weighted with decorative stones that I had no use for, hehe)... and a painted thrift shade with fun foam cut-outs! Ugh, I don't know *how* many hours I sat there cutting out pixellated grass and trees and dogs and ducks..... why must I choose such picky work to do? :giggle:

I do love it, though. I think it turned out better than I expected. :)

Edit::

Thanks to everyone who spread this around, I've been featured in the August issue of Nintendo Power! [link]

...as well as the October issue of the UK magazine GamesMaster! [link]

Hey, this is really cool! I just saw this and it reminded me of my old cartridge of this I found cleaning my room. Probably doesn't work.

Never see anything like this, and it is even better that you got recognition for it! Well done! :+fav:

This is reallly neat! I found it while looking for stuff to make outa cardboard, and I hope you don't mind but I'm inspired to make my own.
Although I'll be making the entire thing out of cardboard.
I've blogged about it here.
