For video game lovers, there is also a special day on August 29 to celebrate them. To this end, many companies have launched special products or small wink that fuse their company with the gamer culture. This is the case of Burger King that turns a hamburger into a game controller.

In this week Burger King introduces Burger Joystick , a controller was created from a Whopper (the iconic fast food hamburger) with potatoes. Without a doubt one of the most creative tributes.

Does the hamburger control work? Surprisingly, yes. According to Merca Portal, Burger King used Makey-Makey Technology, a plate similar to those used by any traditional video game controller, but with a distinctive feature: the alligator clips that allow closing the circuit that carries out the commands.

In fact, this type of plate has become very popular because people take almost any item and turn it into a serving product. It's basically what a Mr. Potato Head would be in real life. Unfortunately, Burger King didn't share the controller in action, which means they didn't show us how the Burger Joystick works. However, the promotional image has instructions on how to play.

  1. Place the items in the spaces indicated.
  2. See the attached video tutorial to make the connections properly.
  3. Have fun playing like you did when you were a child.


If you can't resist the temptation to eat your joystick, GAME OVER is it.
