A few days ago you might have seen images floating around the net of the next Nintendo console controller, The Nintendo NX. There were so many pictures, it just had to be real!
Wrong. It was just [Frank Sandqvist] messing with everyone on the Internet. While phony product leaks are usually just photoshopped or 3D modeled renders, [Frank] took it a step further and actually designed a whole controller, 3D printed it, and took pictures of it. You might be wondering why he would do this. As a Reddit user points out there could be an excellent motive behind it:
You could also use it to get a job as a prop maker. It would look awesome on a CV that you made a prop that fooled the world — [Critters]
But, according to [Frank] it was really just for fun.
And the follow-up — with links to make your own!
Now maybe [Frank] should use his design powers for good, and help design controllers for gamers with physical disabilities that make consumer controllers difficult to use! It’s called the Controller Project, and its lead by our old editor, the one and only [Caleb Kraft]!
