Functioning NES Controller Coffee Table

Logan Miller of MillerWoodshop has created an impressive and fully functioning NES game controller coffee table designed after the classic Nintendo Entertainment System controller from the 1980s. The table, which is available to purchase online from Miller’s Etsy store, comes equipped with a built-in retractable cable for plugging into any original NES console.

This table was built to scale with the original NES controller. This fully functional controller’s buttons have been tuned up for easy play. A heavy coat of clear polyurethane has been added to protect the table from scratches or rings from a glass. It’s a great item for children and adults. The NES coffee table has a modern style and a retro feel. It also comes with 6 spacers that have matching gray paint and gray felt on top and bottom of the cylinder shaped spacers.

‘Rainbow Magic’, A Resin Sculpture That Features a Unicorn and a Narwhal Sharing the Same Brightly Colored Horn

Rainbow in Water

A few weeks ago, our wonderfully outspoken 9-year old niece told us that she believed in unicorns based upon the very real existence of the narwhal, a medium-sized whale with a long horn protruding from its head. She convincingly made her case, vociferously stating that they both come from the same origin.

It appears that Kozyndan (Kozy and Dan), the Los Angeles-based collaborating artist couple, had pretty much the same idea when they created “Rainbow Magic” in in cooperation with Pretty In Plastic. The resin sculpture features a bucking blue and green unicorn inside of a clear narwhal, both sharing a brightly colored horn.

The sculpture is available for $1,500 USD through Kozyndan’s online store.

The magical secret of the narwhal is revealed! We always wondered how a whale came into being with a single giant horn coming out of its head. We concocted our own explanation, but it speaks to the idea of evolution – species evolution and the concurrent evolution of thought. Magic becomes Religion begats Science reveals the Magic inherent in the Universe.
