Xbox Controller Case Mod

...mommy I'm scared...

This may be just the hack I need to keep my kids from hogging the Xbox.  Inspired by the late ’90′s film eXistenZ our hacker friend ‘leftmusing’ came up a mod that might just make you squirm a little.

Sculpted Xbox Controller Mod Parts

After carefully opening the case she applied a little dish soap as a releasing agent.  Then she sculpted Sculpey Polymer Clay into the desired disturbing shape.  Parts of the mold were too thin so she broke it into smaller more manageable chunks and then baked it in the over at 275F for about 10 minutes.

After baking she used a little sandpaper to adjust the fit.  She used epoxy to bond the parts back together and also mixed the dust from sanding with a little epoxy to fill in the gaps. She finished it off with a bit or paint and clear coat.  See more build photos after the break.
