6 Axis PC Controller

Here is a cool project in development, it’s a joystick for the PC that uses accelerometers to to detect user input. It uses a CUBLOC 405 module for the brains and a Dimension Engineering accelerometer to sense movement.

“Today, I was able to get a sneak preview of 6 Axis PC USB controller made by Garrett from scratch. It looks really cool, kinda like the Nintendo Wii controller and the PS3 controller. He used a CUBLOC 405 module, accelerometer, and an unknown USB controller. Garrett says he will have a howto very soon, so keep checking over the next couple days for the 6 axis controller. It’s not wireless yet but that should be the easy part.”
