Clgfive - New Joystick Project
I took apart NheXT last night, and started to add motors to my video-game style controller (see previous posts), when I encountered a problem. The motor was too hard to turn with those little joysticks, so I am stepping it up. Below you will a picture of the new joystick handle I build, which will work in the same way a classic video-game joystick would work. It is basically a long rectangular prism with a touch sensor on the top and the cord running down the interior. Now all I have to do is build the mechanism that reads its motion and its all done! Tommorow I will post I detailed plan of the process I will go through with this project. Stay tuned!
