This steampunk Xbox controller requires a key to turn on

This here is a custom Xbox 360 controller mod that replaces plastic with wood, leather and brass. Oh, and the Xbox button in the middle? It's now a keyhole.

Yes, you need to turn the included key in the keyhole in order to turn the controller on. Don't lose that key! As for the buttons, they're all brass, which may make for some relatively uncomfortable gaming sessions. Just think of it like a built-in time limit to keep you from playing all night.

Want it for yourself? Well, it'll set you back $999.99. Ouch. But hey, at least it's under $1,000!
