Take one yoga ball, some wood, a PlayStation controller, two optical mice, and a smattering of other electronics. Mix 'em all up and what do you get? The world's best Katamari Damacy controller, that's what. This homebrew controller came about because some really cool people wanted to do something awesome for the London Fringe Festival's Nuit Blanche.
I think they succeeded rather well, but I might also be slightly biased—those Katamari-themed costumes they made were simply stellar. Squee.
