Felted Nintendo Nostalgia

There's all sorts of geek crafts floating around the blogosphere, but for some reason, these by Sehr Patola stand out amongst 'em. Perhaps it's that the gray matches 1980s Japanese plastic perfectly. Perhaps its the perfectly resourced buttons that make the scale spot-on. But, I'm pretty sure it's that tiny little LED bead on the Gameboy.
