Adam over at Maniacal Labs has written up documentation on his NExuS weekend project:

My main desires for this build was that the NES look completely stock and unchanged from the front and that original, unmodified, NES gamepads worked via the original gamepad ports. Fortunately, this turned out not to be too bad. First, I needed all the extra parts that would allow me to break out power, network, and video for the Nexus player, and to hook up some extra peripherals. Some I already had lying around, some I had to order but for all parts, these are the exact items:

  • microUSB to microUSB Extension Cable
  • IEC320 C7 Socket
  •  Ethernet Coupler
  • 8″ HDMI Extension
  • Right Angle microUSB Cable
  • microUSB Ethernet Adapter and USB Hub

Also needed were:

  • NES Gamepad Hookup PCB (more on this below)
  • M4-0.7 screws (10-16mm length)
  • Printed brackets (more on this below)
  • 16 AWG Wire
  • Female 2-prong socket end
  • Hot Glue
  • Quick Set Epoxy
  • Low Grit Sandpaper
