News: Smash Bros. Player Builds Controller That Tazes Him, Pichu-Style

Recommended Posts

A Smash Bros. player has built a special controller that will inflict the pain Pichu feels after certain special moves. YouTuber insertcontrollerhere created a mod for a Gamecube-style controller that uses a tazer to inflict electric shocks at the same time Pichu shocks itself after using some moves. When Pichu uses the special moves Thunderjolt, Skullbash, Agility, or Thunder, they take a few percentage points of damage and now, thanks to this mod, insertcontrollerhere will feel that pain as well.

Sorry I haven't posted an update on the controller. My Reddit post blew up yesterday and I hit the front page. I'm working on a gameplay right now and will post it to my channel this week. https://t.co/VF9foSkT9Z#SmashBros #SmashBrosUltimate #Arduino pic.twitter.com/C8bSPKizYa

insertcontrollerhere, whose real name is Eric Heckman, was going to upload footage of live gameplay with the taser controller hooked up, but posted last night that the recorded footage was lost after a camera issue. Heckman will be posting footage soon though, according to Twitter. As to why someone would want to create a controller like this, Heckman doesn't offer any answers in the video about the controller, but a quick stroll through the insertcontrollerhere YouTube channel will give you some idea why, given its focus on mods for all kinds of controllers, to do wildly different things. [ignvideo url="https://www.ign.com/videos/2018/12/06/super-smash-bros-ultimate-all-final-smashes"] Those projects include a controller that makes Smash Bros characters "teabag" when insertcontrollerhere dips a teabag connected to a controller into water, as well as a controller that lets you rage quit with the power of salt. When you want to rage quit, poor salt into a cup of water connected to a controller and the controller will then automatically pause the match and select the quit option. It's a treasure trove of unique controller mods. For more controller mods, check out this ex-NASA engineer's PS4 and Xbox One mod that makes the controllers' vibrations 10 times more powerful.
