Homebrewer makes NES software that can track the International Space Station

Out of this world tech!

Want to know what one of the most sophisticated pieces of technology is doing in the world right now? Well why not use some antiquated hardware to get it done?

An NES homebrewer has decided to use his skills to create something a little more sophisticated for the NES than a game. Believe it or not, this above software is actually capable of tracking the position of the International Space Station in real-time by using the NES' controller port to provide input data.

If you'd like to learn more about how this software works and all the man hours that went into it, you can check out a developer blog here. If you'd rather see more of the software in action, you can check out a direct-feed gameplay video below.
