Nestalgia: record winning game controller

To celebrate the 21st lustrum of the Electrotechnische Vereeniging - my study association - I designed and built the two world's largest game controllers, together with Michel Verhulst and Ben Allen. My main role was as secretary and graphic designer. The logo you just clicked on is done by me. The controllers are thirty times enlargements of the Nintendo NES controller. They measure 3.66 meters in length, 1.22 in depth and 0.55 in height. For practical reasons each controller is divided in three parts. The wooden plates are attached to metal frames. Teams can actually play games, literary on the controllers.

The game controller got a Guinness World Record for being the largest of its kind. We got to present it in Liverpool Street Station, London.
