The Hemp-Mote

December 12th, 2008 by Alex


One unusual, and pretty damn cool, transformation of the Wiimote has been done by the enigmatic modder DHRECK.

The remote is made from 3 different kinds of 100% natural hemp string. Functionally, it is completely intact, with all accelerometers, infrared cameras, and buttons working in perfect order.

This is no cookie-cutter mod, DHRECK didn’t want a stocky, unwieldy remote, so he had to whittle down the main body of each controller by a significant amount. He used saws and files to get the shape required, then re-built the body of each piece with modeling putty. After sanding and some quick painting, that served as the base for his creation.

DHRECK’s overall goal was to turn something stark, bland and boring into a device that was more natural, warm and textured. He’s definitely succeeded, even if the remote itself can degrade quickly due to the fragile nature of how it is wrapped (and the way people use Wiimote’s in the first place).

Tons of extra shots after the jump…
