OK, I seriously couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw some of these things. If you thought that the Guitar Hero stuff, the DJ hero turntable and the upcoming Tony Hawk controller were pushing gaming peripherals further than they needed to, think again.

The highlights include a coffee-table sized NES controller, a jacket that thumps the player in various body regions according to damage received in-game, and perhaps the dodgiest of all, a Korean arcade game requiring players to essentially molest a peripheral resembling someone’s posterior with a giant plastic finger.
