Nintendo Zapper Laser: You Know You Want One!
Remember the good old days of Duck Hunt on NES? Remember the Zapper? I didn’t have an NES, but one of my childhood friends did, and I will never forget the occasions we went to his house to play. Those were definitely good times.
But what if you can use the Zapper for an entirely different purpose? Say you had a Nintendo Zapper Laser – one that works?
You know you want one!
Well, the guys at North Street Labs1 have taken it upon themselves to repurpose that device into something even more awesome: a Nintendo Zapper Laser.
North Street Labs is composed of Steve, Alex, and Justin, who describe themselves as a weird bunch – always have and always will be. For all their weirdness – or maybe because of it – they seem to have done pretty well in life, and with this latest creation, they are sure to get even more attention.
What they have done is “simple”: they took an old Zapper, which I assume was just lying around in their bedroom and retrofitted it with a “ridiculously powered laser”.
This is where the disclaimer comes in.

Yes, boys and girls, lasers may be fun, but they can maim you. They are not to be taken lightly, especially if you have the urge to create your own Nintendo Zapper Laser!
