It looks like MOGA has been inspiring some folks lately. YouTuber Chad Boughton uploaded a video of his awesome creation — a wireless game controller made out of an old Gameboy and some Wii controller parts. The Gameboy was carved to house a cradle that fits the Galaxy Nexus (Chad’s device of choice) perfectly, and the buttons were rewired with the Wii’s.

He then uses the Wii Controller IME app as the driver that helps it all go. This custom modification isn’t something that he’s looking to put up on something like IndieGoGo or Kickstarter, but we wouldn’t mind a walkthrough for those of us feeling a bit nostalgic.

Some YouTube commenters even suggested he use an NFC sticker to automate the tasks of turning on Bluetooth, enabling the Wii IME app and setting everything else up to get ready to game. It’s not a bad suggestion at all. Unfortunately those of us not skilled enough to pull this off can’t do much more than watch the YouTube video above to see it in action, so go ahead and hit the play button to do just that.
