StepMania: A DIY Dance Dance Revolution

Tournament (10)Here’s a great DIY Dance Dance Revolution “StepMania is a rhythm game. Arrows pointing in different directions scroll up from the bottom of the screen and the player must hit the corresponding button in time to the music. The game can be played with your hands using the keyboard, but the real fun comes when using a “dance pad” with foot sensors. StepMania has game types called “Dance”, “Pump”, “Para”, and “Ez2″ that are similar to other music games.” [via] Link.

    The Stepmania software is great. To really enjoy it, you will need to make your own dance pad. I’ve seen several documented DIY projects on the net. Here’s one that I built after seeing what others have done.

    Cool link, Brian.
    I bought a cheapo Xbox soft pad and cut off the xbox head and soldered on a USB head. Works fine. Now maybe I’ll tear apart the soft pad and use your hard pad design with the USB connector, because I like how thin your design is. Thanks!
