Crystal Kinect: You are the *Sparkly* Controller

by Paul Strauss

I can’t figure out what the obsession is with companies dipping gadgets in tacky crystals. Maybe it’s so bloggers like me will write about them. Damn. I’m just perpetuating the madness. I’m part of the problem, not the solution.

The latest gadget to get a bad case of the shiny-sparklies is this Xbox 360 Kinect that’s been encrusted with over 5,000 Swarovski crystals. Unless you’re some sort of pretty princess living in a candy-coated castle, I can’t imagine why you’d spend $631 of your hard-earned money on this thing.

I wonder if the added weight or shimmer of the crystals affects the performance of the Kinect at all. I can’t imagine that it helps things. If you’re really compelled to drop 6 bills on one of these things, you can place your order over at DS Styles now. Be sure to pick up a matching crystal-covered Xbox 360 while you’re at it.

Me, I’m waiting for the 24k gold-plated edition.
