Modder and Twitch streamer Dylan “Rudeism” Beck has transformed a toy game controller made by Mattel Inc's(NASDAQ: MAT) Fisher-Price into a gamepad akin to one made by Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ: MSFT) for its Xbox consoles.

What Happened: Beck, who describes himself as a builder of “bizarre controllers” on Twitter, says the gamepad has everything you’d need to play “Elden Ring,” a game liked by Tesla Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA) CEO Elon Musk for its “incredible art.”

Beck, or "Rudeism" as he is known on Twitter, shared a video of the gamepad in action recently.

Why It Matters: Beck has transformed the “Fisher-Price Game & Learn” into an Xbox controller replete with what was described by The Verge as “classic kiddie hits” such as “1, 2, 3, 4, up goes your score!” and “Orange, purple, white and pink, green, red and blue, woohoo!”

He has also retained the Konami easter egg in the toy. The downside is that the gamepad's shell will not close due to the gadgetry cammed into it. 

To work around its limited controls, Beck rigged up the gamepad's slider as a selector for the left or right joystick.

Previously, he built a motion-controlled lightsaber and played “Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.” He’s also played “Dark Souls 3” with a single button “Morse code” controller.
