Diply 30 Jan 2018

Hey, even if you're making something terrible, that's no excuse to do a half-assed job of it. Pride of craftsmanship can be its own reward — which is great, because in the case of the things below, that's about all they have going for them.

The rest is...decidedly questionable.

1. The Nintendo Zapper was a great toy for an 8-year-old to hunt ducks on a screen in 1986. Modeling a real gun after this toy? Not the best idea.
