Video game controllers X-rayed show the beauty of button mashing

What does a guy with access to industrial X-ray machines do with the see-through machines? X-ray his naughty bits and upload them anonymously to the Internet? Been there, done that. How about X-ray video game controllers? Yeah, now that's more like it.

If you've ever wondered what the inside of today's modern game controllers look like but were too afraid to take a screwdriver to them, here's a look at at things from the inside.
