Introducing PS3 Batarang: PS3 Boomerang Controller Mod Arrives
HotDog-Cart recently completed this PlayStation 3 boomerang controller. The boomerang was originally shown with the PlayStation 3 prototype, and was severely panned by the press... but now it's a reality as a result of some custom modification work.
He started with a cheap 3rd-party controller that was approximately boomerang shaped. He enlarged the controller body ~20% using bondo. The internals were replaced with gear from an official Sony controller. It was finished with a coat of black paint.
Itís definitely a nice build and the new internals mean it probably feels as good as any factory controller.
To quote: What I basically did was take a cheap PS2 boomerang-ish shaped controller, and take its guts out and modify a REAL official Six Axis Controller and put it inside the shell. I also expanded the shell 15%.
I got the controller painted black, so it would be a batman inspired "Batarang Controller".
Please excuse my picture quality. My 5mp camera thinks brand new batteries, are dead. Also, excuse my bondo job. It was my first time.
