“What the Heck?” contest – guess my retail product!

As many of you don’t know I have been working with eDimensional, Inc. on a new gaming accessory. I’m pretty excited as this will be my first retail boxed product – yes I know my book was retail but it didn’t have a box now did it? They gave me a wide latitude on the design and the final product is very benheck – beyond the item itself I ended up doing all the box artwork and advertising items too. Everything is in line with my design aesthetic.


Never do a contest photo without your dial caliper.

Anyway there’s currently a contest running in which you can guess what we’ve cooked up and have a chance to win one, whatever it is. Go ahead and check it out! The tips I will give out is that it’s a gaming accessory (as mentioned) and the cost is under $100.

DISCLAIMER: Any real-life friends of Benjamin J Heckendorn, AKA “benheck”, who have possibly seen what the item is already should not enter because that would be pretty weak.

  1. Nah I think you’re all wrong. Definitely NOT a one handed controller. Nintendo has patents on that one. It’s something special. Something KEWL! I think I know but not telling anyone except for Ben.

  2. i would scan and learn edimensional better in order to guess cause it was made for them by ben!
    they are mainly in to VR and Realisem.

  3. Its a one handed controller for sure, Ben Heck has all ready worked on 360 prototyppes before.

  4. It’s probably a one handed controller and the whole it’s patented thing is probably wrong. Nintendo holds a patent on the Wii remote as a one handed controller and if it has one for other controllers it won’t matter anyways since Mr. Heckendorn’s controller is designed differently.

    Rock on Ben, rock on.

  5. i think its something thats not a one handed controller. i think its a box with a screne, batory, and speekers that u can plug any system into and it instantly becomes portable! (if thats not what it is, u should make one!!)

  6. Its not a one handed controller and the insta portable thing isn’t likely because it would most likely be for newer console and batteries to run those thing are more that $200. so i just want to know when hes announcing what it is.

  7. You guys didn’t even LOOK at the contest.

    it CAN’T be a one-handed controller!
    Look at clue number 4.

    Clue #4 No control….

    He wrote it HIMSELF, guys. It isn’t a controller of ANY kind.

    Seriously…

  8. This is a head mounted “controller” doohickey that measures head angle/movements and maybe cooks bacon.

    Ever heard of two little things called a Portable Television and a Generator?

    As said in the forums do you use any spelling, grammar or even English in that comment.

  11. It’s a headset with “dynamic sound”.
    It gives you the sense that the sound is in one direction or another.
    You hear a sound on your left, and turn your head left, it sounds like it’s in front of you. Get it?

  12. Well…
    I KNOW it’s a sort of headset…
    I think we all can tell that now…
    But what it does… Or why it’s special…
    Well, again, my thought was a dynamic sound headset, but we won’t know for a little while…

  13. So now we know what they are…
    They’re headphones made to give the “effect” of a full 5.1 surround sound system… Cool!
