According to Greenpeace, videogame consoles are toxic. The Wii, PS3 and the 360 are full of polyvinyl chloride, phthalates, beryllium and bromine. Those can kill you, even if they help you play awesome games.

"If manufacturers only looked at each other's products, they'd quickly see ways of replacing their own dirty components with toxic-free materials," The group said on its site.

Inspired by Greenpeace, we built our own entirely environment-friendly console this afternoon. It contains no toxins, and has an entirely neutral carbon footprint because it's powered by pure imagination.

You might call it a pile of dirt sitting in front of a TV, but we call it the Nintendo 360-Station!
