Giant, rolling Katamari Damacy controller

Chris sez, "I am completely obsessed with the Katamari games, so I rounded up a team to throw a Katamari party featuring a 36" Katamari controller controlling the game projected up on a wall. It was a crazy-cool party!"

Yes, yes it was. Next step, a version of this based on an inflatable ball that grows or shrinks in proportion to your katamari's size.

  1. i love the game, and as someone who struggles to use hand-held controllers, i would be thrilled to have one of these, even on a smaller scale.  

  2. >inflatable ball that grows or shrinks in proportion to your katamari’s size.

    Yeah, from a football to a city size.

    1. Yeah, do they know these things eventually roll up countries, planets, and galaxies? I think that would be a rather impractical controller right around the third or fourth level.

  3. Resizing would be awesome, but maybe not too practical. For 2.0 we are thinking of doing an 8 or 10 foot ball, though…

  4. As much as I enjoy my PS3, and I do quite a bit, I can’t help but resent Sony for not releasing Damacy on the PSN Store. Katamari Forever is just weak sauce compared to Damacy.

    And this is one of the few games that actually has me hating the fucking Sixaxis/Dualshock 3.





    It’s things like this that make me want to have kids so I can be the best dad in the world (but also so I have an excuse for spending the family budget on toy projects like this).
