Playing gross-out is easy with Gemini Industries’ new Freak series video-game controllers. Options include the skel­etal Berserker and Frankensteinlike Fleshy — both compatible with PlayStation2 — and Alien, constructed for use with Microsoft’s Xbox. Painstakingly detailed, the devices sport fangs, bulging eyes, and other unsightly artistic flourishes kids will find a scream. $25 (PlayStation2), $30 (Xbox). www.gemini-usa.com
