Wii Controller - for the dirty hippy in you!

So I found this on GeekAlerts.com earlier today, and laughed pretty hard. What will they come up with next. As a graduate of Humboldt State University, most should know about Humboldt and the culture that revolves around it, I was submitted to endless counts of stinky petulie wearing, dreadlock having, hairy hemp clothed hippies. My dislike for this culture grew, so seeing this Wiimote covered in hemp reminded me of this...but I digress.

This was created by DHRECK and he had this to say:
Made from 3 kinds of 100% natural hemp string on the outside, while remaining 100% functional on the inside.

In stark contrast with the original Wii-mote set, what was once sleek, cold, white and hard plastic has now become a slightly fuzzy, natural, warm and textured concoction. No more bland, branded and boring but mottled, flawfull, rough and a tad sweat absorbing.

The Hemp-Mote is absolutely playable, all buttons, accelerometers and the infrared camera accounted for. Unfortunately its exterior is also quite fragile and prone to degeneration, being in the raw state that it is.

You can go visit DHRECK's website for more pictures and information on how he modded this game controller, as well as checking out some of his other projects. Even though this is made of hemp...it is still pretty awesome, great job!
