Xbox's New 'Remix Special Edition' Controller Is Made Using Recycled Materials

We've got another new Xbox Wireless Controller design on the way very soon, and this time it's a controller that's partially made from "reclaimed CDs, water jugs and other controllers' parts". Sounds pretty cool!

Specifically, the Remix Special Edition features "recovered plastics with one-third of it made from regrind and reclaimed materials", and this means you actually get some subtle differences with each version sold.

"Mixing post-consumer recycled resins with regrind consisting of previously molded colored parts creates custom, earth-tone colors with subtle variations, swirling, markings, and texturing – giving each Remix Special Edition controller its own look and feel."

"Regrind is the process of mechanically recycling leftover Xbox One generation controller parts into a raw material that can be used to partially create new controllers – while maintaining durability and performance. Post-consumer recycled resins are incorporated from reclaimed materials like automotive headlight covers, plastic water jugs, and CDs."

Microsoft says that this controller is part of Xbox's mission to achieve "greater sustainability across the Xbox product portfolio", and therefore it also includes a rechargeable battery pack as part of the package.
