World’s biggest NES controller and other giant tech in video


The world’s largest video controller has been unveiled at London’s Liverpool Street Station. The controller is an exact replica of an old NES joypad, scaled up 30 times in each dimension. Hit play on our video to see the massive pad in gigantic action.

The working humungopad, which is 4m long and weighs 120kg, was created by British engineering student Ben Allen and collaborators from Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands. It takes two people to play with and has to be transported in a lorry.


“We built the controller to celebrate the 105th anniversary of our student association,” Allen told us. “We’re all electrical engineering students, and every five years we like to do something crazy.

“The actual build took around four weeks. There were plenty of sleepless nights, especially before the big reveal. I fell asleep under the controller for about half an hour at one point. It’s not necessarily hard, it’s just a lot of work. You need to saw the MDF, you need to paint it, you need to get the circuitry organised, and then bring it all together.”


We went to chat to the team behind the controller and play some epic-scale Super Mario Bros. We’ve also scoured the Internet for more gargantuan gizmos, including the world’s largest mobile phone and the world’s biggest electric guitar. And because we were hungry, we also put in the world’s biggest cake, a monstrous 12-tonne, 50-metre long dessert made for the president of Azerbaijan’s 50th birthday. See it and much more by clicking play on the video.


Would you like to see more gigantic gadgets? Or do you think making huge versions of normal-sized things is a pointless waste of time? Do let us know in the comments below, or on our perfectly proportioned Facebook page.

Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock coming soon to the PS3 and Vita



The clock is ticking for Doctor Who landing on the PlayStation 3. Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock is coming soon, featuring timey-wimey gaming thrills pitting you against the Daleks, Cybermen and Silurians.



In the game you take contol of both the Doctor and companion River Song, voiced by Matt Smith and Alex Kingston, to unravel the mystery of The Eternity Clock. Players sneak, run, swing and jump across rooftops and fog-shrouded London streets, heading “into the belly of the beast” to defeat the nefarious plans of the new-look Cybermen, Daleks, and Silurians, as well as the Silence. Er… what were the Silence supposed to be again?

The trailer offers little clue to the latest travails of the Time Lord, aside from telling us that the TARDIS is at the heart of the maelstrom. Ruined London streets and what looks like a mission into a vast Dalek spaceship have got us a wee bit excited about the game: Allons-y! Er, we mean, Geronimo!




There’s no sign of Amy Pond in the trailer — sorry dads — but you do see plenty of River Song. Press play below to see the action:







There are a bunch of options for Gallifreyan gaming, including cartoony online game Worlds in Time, iPhone and iPad puzzler The Mazes of Time, and various interactive episodes.



You can also play Evacuation Earth on the Nintendo DS and Return to Earth on the Wii.


For all your gaming goodness, check out our button-bashing buddies at GameSpot UK. They may not wear bow-ties very often but they all look great in a fez.



Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock materialises on the PS3 and PS Vita via the PlayStation Network in March 2012, with a PC version to follow later.

Are you hoping to get your hands on a copy of the game? Let us know in the comments below or head over to our Facebook page.
