Play the NES Classic from your couch with these wireless controllers

Here’s one solution to those impossibly short cords.

Every kid with an NES always played the same way: sitting on the floor three feet from the television, looking upward with controller in hand. 

The NES Classic‘s short controller cords were likely an homage to that time, but the problem is, we’re grown adults now and we like playing video games from the comfort of our sofas instead of bathing our eyeballs in radiation. Nintendo didn’t think of that, but luckily Nyko did, which is why its Miniboss wireless controllers are the perfect solution.

You can pre-order them now through Amazon. According to Nyko, they are shipping in the next few days, so you won’t have long to wait. At $19.99 a pop, they allow you to play from up to 30 feet away. And as a bonus, they’re much easier to throw across the room when you get frustrated that you keep dying in the same spot.
