Welcome to another installment of DIY-erless, where we point you towards fun and interesting ways to potentially hurt yourself in the pursuit of making things that were once constrained by the shackles and fetters of wires, wireless. Today, we'll look at creating a wireless NES pad. Sounds pretty boring, right? That's because we didn't get to the good part yet: it's a wireless NES pad that works with your Wii and all of its Virtual Console yumyums. The same site is also hosting a wireless SNES pad guide, if that's more your thing. Toss in some wireless Genesis and TurboGrafx-16 controllers and you've got an entire wireless VC arsenal.

Be warned: the process involves all sorts of esoteric items, like microcontrollers, IC socket strips, and crystals (no, seriously) so weekend soldering fans might want to reconsider.
