NINTENDO - the good, the bad, and the ugly.

I'm better at gaming than you and I can't even use my hands!
The Hands Free Controller! (HFC)

For people with physical limitations, such as not having the use of your hands, Nintendo was cool enough to create the Hands Free Controller. It was worn like a vest and it used a "sip and puff" method to control the A and B buttons - Sip on the straw to activate the A button, puff air into it to activate the B button. The directional pad was controlled by using your chin on a special joystick. Not sold in stores, the Hands Free Controller had to be ordered through Nintendo's customer service line for $120 (or $179 for a package with the controller, the system and a game).

I think he's currently being assimilated by the Borg

There was apparently a black model which looked more like something straight out of and episode of Battlestar Gallactica, but I've never seen it for sale anywhere so this could've been a prototype.

So to those of you who used to whine about how using R.O.B. to play games was too hard, after seeing this controller you should feel like a bunch of humbled bastards.
