Computers & Mobile

A USB-based twelve-button event controller (probably repurposed from a game controller). The site is in German, so there’s not much more about it.

    even if it was in English there wouldnt be so much to talk about. the device is based on an old gamepad. put it in a box, add some new momentary switches and ur done. programming was considered “a joke” by himself, just some lines VB.

    game pad hacks are quite common in the German HTPC comunity. It´s really cool to control winamp with real buttons
