Custom gaming hardware is becoming increasingly accessible across the Xbox One family, with various consoles and accessories available directly through Microsoft. While special edition controllers from Microsoft offer some truly outstanding designs, programs like Xbox Design Lab provide a truly personal twist to the standard controller.

It might not be likely but one Windows Central forum user pitched a unique idea – a modular Xbox One with configurable hardware and cosmetics.
