Custom Steampunk Xbox 360 Controller Hits Auction

eBay user "troxin_kustoms" is selling the custom (and working, he claims) Xbox 360 controller mod you see, a painted beauty meant to resemble a less advanced, repurposed construction material. Alongside the custom paint job, all of the face buttons and analog sticks have been ripped out in favor of old typewriter keys. (Culture, Tech, Xbox 360)

Unfortunately I am rather broke at the moment.

The spare cash I have, while I really do want that, could go a lot further than simply a cool looking controller.

That is hideous. That looks like a kid ripped his controller apart and put it back together using old cheap parts and a glue gun. The paint job is atrocious too. Sorry, that's a horrible attempt at steampunk. You need gears and/or pistons somewhere on it.

Steampunk can look amazing when done correctly but this is done by an amateur and it shows. I can't believe anyone thinks that looks good.

Just look at some of those and then look at this.

I wouldn't go so far as to say it's "hideous," but I must agree somewhat with Veni. This is far from an excellent example of steampunk work, and not really worthy of a story, in my opinion. The paint job is inconsistent and not very convincing -- although, I do like the typewriter keys and the keyhole on the back. :)
