Hipster shit. Remarkable that it's not even single-layer polyurethaned. Looking forward to woodboring beetles living in my NES carts, right alongside dry rot.

I wonder if there is something cheap and easy you could do with plexiglass and standoffs. And another thing, I have never seen a cart that has 72-pins on one end and 60-pins on the other end. I think it would save cost to produce just 1 cart instead of 2 if you wanted to support both FC and NES. It does require a large PCB to go all the way across the NES sized cart though, maybe there is a tradeoff there.

Double-ended cartridges exist for the Atari 2600 and other platforms, usually so they'd hold 2 games (a simple switch would probably have been cheaper!), but for the NES/Famicom, two sets of pins actually make a lot more sense! Is the PCB thickness the same for NES and Famicom though?

I've spent way too much time trying to come up with a double-ender design for an Atari 2600 game on one end, and a NES game on the other.

@Koitsu: I guess that's a new kind of "environmental friendly" NES case. lol

I remember I did talk about it before on this post.
It has a picture of the messy component side of the board.
I had a shell-less one, wich unfortunately broke when I moved from my old home. :cry:
