Building weird games controllers.

Talk by ben Everard (he/hom) 👨‍👧‍👧

Friday from 4:50 PM - 5:20 PM in Stage A

Games controllers are boring. They have the same few buttons in the same place. It doesn't have to be this way. In this talk, I'll go through how I've made controllers that are different and unique. These controllers are quick and easy to make with a microcontroller and Circuit Python, and theycan use almost any input device, such as slider potentiometers, rotary encoders, IMUs and touch pads. We’ll look at what’s worked, what hasn’t and how to make your own games controller.
