    Dutch students have built the world’s largest functioning NES controller. The gamepad measures "around 11.8 feet by 5.2 feet". Gamers with big hands have something to look forward to, the question now is how will they ship it?

    Finally something for fat people. That should stop them from complaining that the controllers are too small.

    This is old, unless this is bigger. I Remember seeing this on AoTS about a year ago and it took 3. One for each of the buttons and one for the d-pad

    The latency might be an issue, also the buttons look skewed, might be unresponsive.

    Now people can't complain they hit the wrong button, just that they can't reach it. [​IMG]
