    This is the NES controller Konami code tattoo (with 1:1 scale buttons!) that Kevin Pacheco got on his forearm. Presumably as some romantic inspiration for when the internet is out and he's too exhausted to use his imagination. Unfortunately, it actually reads upside-down to K... / Continue →

    Sometimes life hands you lemons, and you can make lemonade. But other times life puts a pillowcase over your head and pummels you with cantaloupes. I hate cantaloupe. Or is it honeydew? My point is the bruises are healing and I'll be back to embarrassing myself later today ... / Continue →

    The MaKey MaKey (rhymes with nakey nakey, eggs and bakey) is a little circuit board that can turn ANYTHING into a computer keyboard/controller by attaching alligator clips to the object. Hold on, let me copy/paste something that can explain it better than I can. Well, not BET... / Continue →

    Etsy seller DieselLaceDesign (I love the smell of diesel and lace!) is selling these wireless XBox 360 controllers (plus DIY kits) with spent 9mm shells in place of the buttons. Will they make you better at Call of Duty? No. Will they make your friends think you're cooler? ... / Continue →

    They're not universal? Somebody sent their mom to the store for a PS3 controller and she came back with an X-Box one. So what did they do? Sent her back to exchange it without even giving her a decent lie to cover the mistake. Now it's here on the internet for everyone to m... / Continue →

    Ever wish you could move your fingers involuntarily? Hell no, that's how people wind up stabbing themselves (alternatively, running with scissors -- it's a no-no, kids). But did that stop researchers at the University of Tokyo from packing the technology into a wristband? It... / Continue →

    Today at E3 Nintendo announced the 2012 release of its next generation console, the Wii U (great job knocking the 'an even worse name than I expected' ball out of the park, guys). The system will boast controllers with 6.2" high-res touchscreens (and a gyroscope, accelerometer... / Continue →

    Note: Larger version HERE in case you want to print a copy yourself and save $30 by not buying a poster. This is the family tree of video game controllers inspired by this family tree of video game controllers except way more professional looking. It's like if you and I both ... / Continue →

    Seen here looking like the lovechild of a simian and the lesser GW, some kid went and made himself an XBox controller pipe. I assume this image was captured as he snuck out of his basement abode for a hit right before his mommy called him to Thanksgiving dinner so he'd be suff... / Continue →

    This is the Church of Nintendo. Except not really because it's the Church of St. George in Lalibela, Ethiopia. The D-pad portion of the church and select button were actually carved out of solid rock. Sadly, the start and A and B buttons (trees) were all Photoshopped in. St... / Continue →

    Many of you are probably thinking I only posted this because I needed something I could just toss up quick and dirty to keep you entertained while I unload a shit-ton of boxes. Well those people are 100% correct and should consider careers in child psychology. jmi3i [izit] ... / Continue →
