Tony Hawk: Ride Controller Has A Use After All (As A Skateboard)

Tony Hawk: Ride may have been useless as video game, but that sturdy plastic controller may have a second calling as a real skateboard. All you need is your own wheels.


A few drills and grip tape and these kids are off, the former game peripheral given a new lease on life as a skateboard deck. And it holds up pretty well! Not well enough for everyday use, of course, but well enough to get these guys by with until John Q Law shows up (and for which they have a waterproof set of excuses).

All that and that chiptune version of Raining Blood is great.

Hadn't seen the full video. destroying the consoles that cost hundreds of dollars to their parents is not cool. Also that cop is both dumb and a jerk.
