Okay, here's the most ridiculous and also coolest controller of all time: the Sega Activator.
It's a ring of sensors that project beams of infrared light to the ceiling; when you move a limb in one of the directions, it breaks the light and it is registered as a button press. So you can control Street Fighter by actually punching and kicking.

In practice it didn't work well because the idea is fucking stupid.

Something that was brought up in another thread >>421342 but bears repeating.
Are a promotional thing for the new Sonic movie that came out

Fluffy controllers are such a fucking bad idea, even if you aren't a filthy fuck with cheeto hands yours still naturally put out sweat and oil.
In no time at all these are gonna be matted and disgusting with the human grime, and its not like you can even just wipe them down like you can with normal smooth plastic controllers.

>Why don't gamepads have Turbo/Auto switches anymore.
1. not enough space for every button
2. fewer games would benefit from it. Games either have autofire now to be more accessible, or don't require super fast button mashing.

I mean, in the 16/32-bit era it would help you to fire faster with Megaman or Metal Slug. But with Tomb Raider or Halo, it makes zero difference.

No, modern consoles are PC set top boxes with a custom OS, and the CDI predates even DVD players (arguably the menu controls on the DVD was inspired by the CDI).

I loved my SNES bazooka.
As a lightgun accessory it is needlessly oversized and awkwardly designed for its purpose but still was the best (So cool it was used as the basis for a plot-important prop in the Mario Bros movie).

The NES Zapper wasn't bad either to be honest.
Better to have one that looks like a sci-fi raygun than a lightgun that is trying too hard to look real and tactical.

Isn't this the thing the super commandos wore on their heads in Universal Soldier?

Most of the people who bought it probably fucked themselves up trying to use it.

Third party, designed to be used one handed for some reason.

That's not that dumb, although not optimal. I find myself often using the controller one handed in stuff like RPGs when grinding. One question I'd have is which way is up on the d-pad.

it does have a design flaw in that it looks like fixed left handed. The d-pad should be possible to re-align to the other side for right handed usage. But if I'd use this for grinding rpgs with one hand, I'd probably use my left hand for that while doing other things with my right hand.
However this way it wouldn't be that useful for, say, handicapped people who only have one hand.
