Eindhoven University of Technology students build the largest working Nintendo controller in the world

Thanks to the jubilating study association Thor, passers-by on the TU/e ​​campus play in Super Mario XL size. The mega controller is 6 by 2.5 meters in size and is based on the popular Super Nintendo from the nineties. The giant model was built by four committee members and a handful of volunteers from the jubilating study association Thor (Department of Electrical Engineering).

Everyone can play a game of Super Mario on the TU/e ​​campus, in the Markthal at MetaForum, until Friday 2 December.

Thor wanted to ‘do something cool’ again for their 65th anniversary. In 2014, Thor already projected the largest Tetris game ever on one of the buildings on the TU/e ​​campus, at the time good enough for a mention in the Guinness Book of Records.

This time the team spent about three quarters of a year working out and building, mainly in Britt’s garden under a party tent.

The buttons of the original controller are not only round, but also slightly curved. To simulate this on a large scale, a striking solution was chosen.

It is not yet known what will happen to the controller – which is connected to the screen via a laptop – after Friday 2 December.
