If you grew up in the 90's and you've played GoldenEye on the N64, you would certainly want your own N64 GoldenEye remote mine props. ComradeQuiche created his version of a Remote Mine using an old joystick base. It has beeper and blinking LEDs as well as magnets in the back so it can be stuck to metal surfaces.

ComradeQuiche uses a "PC Commander" Joystick from the 90's as the Remote Mine's body, but if you'd rather print your own parts ComradeQuiche has also provided 3D files and a detailed instruction on Thingiverse.

To get started you need following components:

  • Mini LED Light Chaser by Velleman (The one with the 9v cord sticking out) (Amazon, buy 1)
  • 76dB Piezo Buzzer Item#: 2062397 (Radioshack, buy 1)
  • 5mm Red LED with Holder Item#: 2062548 (Radioshack, buy 6)
  • SPST Push On-Push Off Switch Item#: 2049717 (Radioshack, buy 1)
  • Neodymium Magnets 3/8" dia. x 1/4" thick, Item# D64-N52 (K&J Magnetics, buy 8)

And of course, a 3D printer. With a little electrical know-how you can now create your own N64 GoldenEye remote mine props.

Below is a video showing this 3D printed N64 GoldenEye remote mine gets stuck on a door and activated. Blinks, and beeps. Other than the electronic components the entire thing has been 3D printed on a Makerbot 2 3D printer.
