Video Game Controllers Get X-Rayed

I like to imagine that this series of pictures started as an argument between two friends where one blamed his malfunctioning controller when he kept losing a game. “You’re lying,” “No, the button really sticks!” “I’ll prove it!” And so they wandered into their day job as X-ray technicians, and this photo set was born.

In reality, it was just a bored person with access to such a machine, but the resulting pictures are an almost beautiful collection of machinery hidden inside items we take for granted. There’s a lot of work that goes into making an effective controller. Note that the Wiimote and Nunchuck have not been X-rayed. That’s because all you’d find inside them was candy corn and magic.
