What's the only thing cooler than a coffee table shaped like an OG Nintendo controller? One that actually works, duh. The Boho Workbench in Venice designed a table that you can put your drinks on or use to play Nintendo (or both simultaneously!)

Thrillist gave the coffee table several totally scientific test runs changing the variables slightly each time, including a run to the dispensary (happy 4/20!):

Test 2: Super Mario Brothers 3, 1-player mode, after a trip to the dispensary
Normal Nintendo Controller: Wait, this normal Nintendo controller is a working Nintendo controller??
Functional Coffee Table Nintendo Controller: Wait, this coffee table is a working Nintendo controller??
