Bop It might be fun for most of the family, but YouTube user jhalfmoon found his three year old daughter was having a little trouble keeping up with the Extreme 2 incarnation. His solution? Hack the internals to slow the pace down, making the game sound like a tinny dubstep remix in the process. The hack works by adding a potentiometer and switch to the device's circuitry, letting him slow or speed the pace of the soundtrack while retaining the original game mode. Check the video below for a full demonstration.
