An Xbox controller can be used in many ways, and the most popular way, of course, is throwing it against the wall after you lose a game. But we guarantee that not too many people have recycled the oddly shaped device into something as useful as a dog leash. And that is exactly what one innovative pet owner has done. Here's how.

The dog owner could not have been more creative than when he hallowed out an Xbox controller, attached a rope to it, and then even installed a dispenser for dog poop bags. A bonus is that anyone using the controller as a leash can balance the pull from the dog with two hands. Now that is even better than inventing a video game!

Check out the images for a breakdown of how to make an Xbox leash yourself.

Watch exes duke it out and fall back in love in the comedic medical drama Emergency Couple.

We salute this ingenious invention, and from the looks of it, even the dogs are impressed.
