Former NASA Engineer Creates “Insane” Dualshock 4 And Xbox One Controller Mod
When it comes to gaming, there’s not shortage of modders and hackers entering the scene. Whether it’s testing their personal engineering or analytical prowess, there’s always the folks out there aiming to reach outrageous heights and new feats. Former NASA engineer and founder of Invexiion Labs, Jacob Middleton introduced his Kickstarter campaign to create and release the MEGA-one, an “insane, over-the-top” Dualshock 4 and Xbox One controller mod.
To bring gaming to an entirely new, elevated level of adrenaline inducing adventures, the MEGA-one controller mod is a “brand new way to experience games” that includes more intense and in-depth vibration and force feedback. The entire modification is attached to the Dualshock 4 or Xbox One controller, an exoskeleton design created from aircraft-grade aluminum and other industrial-grade components. Here’s a short snippet of what the mod can do:
Imagine playing your favorite FPS or racing game with the MEGA-one™! Each bullet you fire recoils the controller back at you! Each turn you take in your get-away car jerks your hands from left-to-right as you fight to stay in control! Or any of a million other awesome games that you want to experience more!”
The MEGA-one is compatible with any game for the respective console, detachable within 10 seconds, adjustable force from “low to insane”, and even features a jet fighter ignition switch to turn on and off the force-feedback. In fact, the motor for the MEGA-one is “500 times stronger than the stock” controllers. It’s all about feeling the intensity of the game you’re playing because stock hardware is for filthy casuals. Duh.
This outrageous controller mod is available to back on Kickstarter right here with pledges ranging from $10 to $1,000 (CAD). At the $129 mark, backers will receive the kit that allows users to place the exoskeleton on their personal devices. At $198, the product comes ready to play without the hassle of putting it altogether!
That’s what I call a dedicated gamer through and through. It’s not a drill everyone, this is very much a real thing.
