So for one of my mini briefs i was asked to create an interactive controller “to bridge the gap between the user and the digital product” and could be for anything that can play a game like a console, tablet, mobile, computer etc. I started thinking about a few idea’s and here are a few i was thinking about doing –
- Controller that a tablet or mobile device can be put in, adjustable so different devices can use it.
- Xbox or PS3 controller which instead of analog sticks and buttons has touch pads in the same places.
- An Xbox controller with two separate parts and has motion control.
I decided to go with the latter because i wanted to do something similar to the old gun controllers you used to get on older consoles which i loved. And i know the Wii controller is like in the way you point at the screen but i wanted one that could be used to play the more so called hardcore games like call of duty, battlefield, gears of war and many others. I was going for the feel of playing time crisis games and arcade games like house of the dead, this is what i came up with…
