A Vietnamese developer named Trần Vũ Trúc has created an emulator that turns your old NES games into 3D games. It's made with Unity and is currently only functional on Firefox.

The emulator basically takes the sprites and attempts to figure out what they'd look like in 3D. This works with some games more than others. Contra and Dr. Mario look great, but Super Mario Bros 3 and Mega Man are a bit rough. But the possibilities here are exciting!

If you have Firefox handy, play around with it here: http://tructv.bitbucket.org/3dnes/
