'Nerdy Clocks' may be reminiscent of being in middle school and staying up past our bedtime to play our favorite Nintendo games such as Super Mario Brothers, Contra and Donkey Kong. Although the day of the original Nintendo video game system is long gone, true fans of the classic console can be reminded of it with these Nintendo desk clocks.

These handmade desk clocks are created from recycled Nintendo cartridges that have been mounted on a clear acrylic desk stand. You can choose from a variety of old-school games, including Super Mario Brothers 3, Mike Tyson Punch Out, Robo Cop, Goonies 2, Beetlejuice, Tetris 2, Dr. Mario, Friday the 13th, Rambo and Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure.

The clocks run on two AA batteries, and they're sold in the Nerdy Clocks Etsy shop online. The seller can even turn them into wall mounted clocks at your request.
