Custom Controller Hack Aims To Cool Your Greasy Gaming Hands

Clam hands. Stink palms. Finger grease. Whatever you want to call it, the residue that gathers on ones hands (and controller) post-gaming session is becoming a deadly epidemic in this country. Not a day goes by, not a day, that I don’t pick up my gaming controller only to find that someone’s oily mitts had previously been secreting all over it. If only someone could think up a crude way to drill a bunch of holes into my Xbox controller and then Gorilla Glue a PC’s cooling fan onto the back of it? Does this sound mildly dangerous, haphazard and half-baked to anyone else? Well, you are exactly right.

Loyal HackaDay reader, [Happy Dragon], recently sent in pics of his custom attempt to utterly ruin a gaming controller cooling controller. After drilling filter holes and gutting the battery back off of an Xbox controller, [Happy Dragon] then hooked up a separate USB link to power the added controller mojo.

Can’t blame a dude for trying, even if the aftermath of such a build is that you now have to game holding a chunk of half melted plastic in your now-clean hands. Pornographically close up images from the hack, after the jump.
