Nintendo Zapper Lamp

Nintendo Zapper Lamp

Craftster member fluffypants from Ontario, Canada has put together this fun and cool looking lamp using a Nintendo zapper and a Duck Hunt cartridge.

A regular cartridge was too small a base, so I measured one and made a 1.5 scale replica out of cardboard, and screwed the gun to it. I weighted it with stones, and then tackled the shade.

I picked up a $2 shade at the re-store, a pack of fun foam, and voila! After hours and hours of cutting pixellated shapes, I was done! A little dab of glue to secure the shade, and… ta dah!
