Geek turns Sega Saturn joystick into Transformer-style bug

I am a big fan of people with way more time to play than I have who take things and turn them into things you might not expect. A guy named James Ian Killinger has taken a Sega Saturn flight controller and hacked the controller into a transforming bug-like device.

I don’t even recall the Sega Saturn; much less have the ability to pull off this cool transformation. The finished "space bug" as Killinger calls it uses all of the joysticks original components and three extra screws.

If I had tried to build this, I would have needed lots of duct tape and spent hours climbing around in the couch cushions looking for the three screws I dropped. The only way the thing could be cooler would be if it could transform back into a joystick that still worked.
