Xbox 360 Controller Mod Dispenses Hot Pockets

By - Source: Kotaku | B 17 comments

Because sometimes you just can't afford to take a break to eat.

Eating while gaming isn't exactly the easiest thing to do, unless you are playing a game with nauseatingly long cutscenes. You may find yourself getting food all over the place or getting killed the second you decide to set that controller down and take a bite of food. Luckily for anybody who can't seem to find the chance to take a break and eat, master tinkerer Ben Heck made the startling discovery that the top of the Xbox 360 controller seems to contour perfectly to a Hot Pocket.

Xbox 360 Controller Dispenses Hot Pockets

In the latest episode of the Ben Heck Show, Ben creates a life changing Xbox 360 controller mod that features a spring loaded mechanism to deliver Hot Pocket goodness without any interruption of gameplay. Although the initial design involved an electrical motor, Ben decided the spring-powered device would be much easier to make. All you have to do is lift a conveniently located lever and the spring will lift your hot pocket, allowing you to consume the entire thing without ever letting go of your controller.

As incredibly entertaining as this contraption may be, we hope a commercialized version never goes into production. Excessive gaming can already be dangerous as is, but combining that with massive amounts of processed food and laziness is a recipe for disaster. It's a good thing this modification doesn't cook the Hot Pocket as well, that short trip to the microwave might be the only exercise you get after getting one of these dispensers.

    I love it! Even if you're not too lazy to feed yourself, it keeps you from having to get hot-pocket grease all over your thumbsticks.... Yes that does sound odd I know

    Completely lame ! If you're playing a shooter, eat while ur dead and waiting to respawn.. or eat between matches. If you're playing MMORPG, well.. hell, you can eat whenever you want. Play a game like Fable, press PAUSE! geez...

    mobrocketNO... just need to be born in America... where being fat / lazy is accepted and considered not your fault...


    fat is excepted to an extent, obese is mealy tolerated (not that stupid number chart obese, but the kind where there is no way they could fit down a normal store isle kind)

    lazy, well... we all are to some extent, so long as you are useful you are tolerated.

    The should make it link to the game where you can only grab a bite if you won the round, otherwise the Hot Pocket gets locked in its transparent tomb.

    Oh so it's just a glorified infomercial for CAD software with ad placement by Pepsi, Dominoes, and Nestlé (maker of Hot Pockets).

    Et tu, Ben Heck?
