Flickr user mattcyborgelt has created this supremely awesome super-sized NES coffee table which includes a functional lid, controller ports which are electric outlets (allowing you to plug-in your laptop or other devices), and a back door which opens to allow you to get access to your various components or storage. Oh yeah, it also comes with a fully-functional lap-sized NES controller. Need I say it? I want one!!!
