Before you read this if you hate seeing Xbox controllers in a freakish state look away now, otherwise read on.
Put the children to bed and the squeamish look away, its time for Frankenstein's Controller.
In my boredom I have severely modified one of my original Xbox controllers in three unnecessary ways. The first was an attempt to add a usb port to the controller. It does work but..
it is somewhat large. It does allow me to use my flash drive and psp as a memory card and I might be able to connect usb controllers to it. Now the second part was to make the cord removable so that I could use it on a normal controller that was missing the cord.
Yes, that is a phone jack. Yes, that works also.
The next part was the most ambitious and took the longest amount of time. May I present the cardboard NES controller.
It is made of nothing but cardboard, stereo wire, and spare buttons. It also works, although the D-pad could be better, but what do you expect from cardboard. But if you want to make Metal Gear Solid twice as hard, its perfect.
Everything works, everything was not needed in any way, and it was all free.
Sorry if the pictures are blurry, the photographer didn't have the steadiest of hands.
