With Xbox 360 controller and speech recognition kit in hand, the guys over at AcidMods went out and modded their own voice recognition 360 controller. For real. The entire controller assembly wouldn't win any beauty pageants, but the voice recognition (surprisingly) works rather well. Just check out the demo video we've embedded after the break for proof's sake. Though, we're not sure how useful a bulky mod like this would be in the real gaming world (not to mention the mod's cost), but it's interesting nonetheless and packs a lot of potential. Now follow along ... reload, jump, switch, reload and jump. Good!
