Copper Circuit Board NES Pad

There are many examples out there on the Internet of clever creations that people can come up with using only the basic of equipment. One such creation is this replica Nintendo Entertainment System control pad made out of a simple copper circuit board.

The circuit board controller was created using The MezzoMill, which itself is an invention featured on the site Kickstarter. The MezzoMill is a machine created to specifically create circuit boards out of sheets of copper. These circuit boards can be used for all manner of applications such as the afore mentioned NES control pad. The sheet of copper can act as a controller because it allows different regions of the copper to be detected as buttons.

It’s great to see the electronics community continuously developing products and prototype PCB designs for new uses and there is always something new to find out there on the web.
