The Evotainment Evo/Wii Controller Hybrid: Because Shut Up

If you’re like me, you own an Evo and a Wii. So did this guy. Where you and I differ from this guy is he made them have babies, and nine release cycles later, the kludgy monstrosity to your left was born. Why? Well, why not, I say! For that matter, why shouldn’t I hook my video camera up to my toaster? Or hook my car stereo up to my refrigerator? Or hook my Virtual Boy up to my cat?

Pro tip: I’ve tried at least two of those and failed. It’s not worth it.

In any case, the device actually looks pretty cool. The Wiimote connects to the Evo via bluetooth, and then lovingly brings along the Classic Controller for a ménage à trois from the hellish pits of World 8. Functional? Gloriously. Elegant? You want elegant, go check out some iPad accessories, because you’re not getting it here.

And if you were wondering why there’s also a Mario Kart steering wheel in the mix…well, what did you think he was going to hold this thing together with? Duct tape? Please. Have some class.

Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be any instructions or Instructables on how to make this genetic defect of electronic inbreeding that I so desperately want to play with.
