These Guys Built a Fake Submarine to Play Submarine Games in August 8, 2012

Rather than simply rig up an existing title, the guys made their own primitive game, that’s played by using the actual controls and responding to feedback. For example, if a torpedo is incoming, players will be audibly warned, then you’ll need to “pull handles” and “crank valves” in order to evade it.

The condom, obviously, is pictured above. It’s worth noting that, at this point in history, condoms were meant to be reusable.
