British engineering student Ben Allen loves gaming. He loves it so much that he poured £4,000 into making a video game controller. A really big video game controller.

It is the largest, apparently, and is 30 times the size of a standard NES controller, which is what it’s modeled after.

“This is really a labour of love. We’re passionate about gaming and wanted to honour its most iconic device; the NES (Nintendo Entertainment System) joypad.

“We put our heads together in the pub and decided to create this absurdly large working version! It’s such a rush to know we’ve made history and are being included in the Guinness World Records Gamer’s Edition.”
