    Most of us natively play our games with a keyboard and mouse - or a gamepad, if you are the owner of a console. There are games that profit greatly from a special controller - I myself couldn't imagine any serious racing games that could be played without a steering wheel. But what about other controllers? How about a control glove, or perhaps a chainsaw, that will definitely make you feel "in the game"?

    the Nintendo Powerglove was awesome. So was the Powerpad. I loved those two controllers.
    Has anyone tried hold the old rectangular controllers of yore? They absolutely cramp, hurt and tear your hands up.

    A student in the tech department at my school few years back designed a gaming platform that you just stand on and lean to go in that direction. It was like...hooked up to the axis of a joypad analogue stick.

    Is that 3rd Picture seriously a controller?

    Thank god Sony didn't go ahead with that bananarama controller. Now that would have stopped it selling.

    I want the thing in the third picture so badly. Except for the fact that it costs $35,000!

    Looks like some sort of torture device in the third one imo :confused:
