Neatorama reader DHRECK wrote to us about his latest art creation: a fully functional Wii-mote/nunchuck completely covered with hemp strings!
Made from 3 kinds of 100% natural hemp string on the outside, while remaining 100% functional on the inside.
In stark contrast with the original Wii-mote set, what was once sleek, cold, white and hard plastic has now become a slightly fuzzy, natural, warm and textured concoction. No more bland, branded and boring
but mottled, flawfull, rough and a tad sweat absorbing.
The Hemp-Mote is absolutely playable, all buttons, accelerometers and the infrared camera accounted for. Unfortunately its exterior is also quite fragile and prone to degeneration, being in the raw state that it is.
