As much as I enjoy modern-day video game consoles like the Wii, Xbox and PlayStation, nothing compares to the most awesome game console of them all: the original 8-bit Nintendo Entertainment System. I loved games like the original Super Mario Bros., Contra, Mike Tyson's Punch-Out and Castlevania.

Previously I showed you 8 ways to recycle Nintendo video game controllers. Now here are 3 unique ways to turn those old school Nintendo game cartridges into cool new products.

1. Hard Drives

2. Lamp

This unique lamp is made from a Duck Hunt video game cartridge and zapper!
