    [tut[ Turn your NES Light Gun into a real laser gun

    Who doesn't love Duck Hunt? It's arguably one of the most popular
    games ever created for the original NES system, even in spite of the
    mocking dog that everyone
    hates. I'm sure a lot of people still have their old controllers in the
    attic somewhere, so unless you're lucky enough to have an NES that
    still works, why not put that childhood nostalgia to good use?
    With this tutorial by the guys over at North Street Labs, you can turn your old gun controller into a real-life Zapper that sets stuff on fire with a high-powered laser, Obviously, this is the kind of beam gun you shouldn't point at your TV.


    [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] This
    is a relatively simple mod. NSL started out by taking apart the
    controller and removing all the insides except for the switch and
    trigger mechanism. They added a power wire and got rid of some plastic
    supports inside the gun to make room for the batteries.
    Next, they
    added the laser component, a 445nm M140 diode. This laser is actually
    powerful enough to blind you pretty much instantly, so NSL decided to
    include a safety in the base.
