Now that 3D printing technology has become slightly more affordable and thus accessible to the public, homemade geeky replicas like this remote mine are no longer the things of nerdy dreams, but instead tangible realities.

Although this remote mine replica doesn't actually explode, Shane gives an in-depth description of the dimensions and intricate steps involved with creating this neat homage to one of Nintendo's most memorable games.
