Keyboard Joystick! by eranglr Apr 18, 2010

Featured Thing!


I always dreamed about a compact-yet-elegant joystick for playing quick games on my computer - tetris, Packman, Mario, etc'..
I've made this simple keyboard joystick -
print it on your 3d printer --> stick it on your keyboard --> Play!

I doubt that this would be possible. However, if you do find a way I will stand corrected.
This looks like a bacteriophage :)

<p>So cool!! :-P</p>

<p>Print one now. Debating on magnets or foam double sided sticky tape.</p>

<p>printing one now*</p>

<p>Done!! Works ok with foam double sided sticky tape</p>

<p>Just seend the image, this is an amazing world! <br>I sit with a cup of coffee on this side of the world (Israel) and you make it with your 3d machine over there.. =-O</p>

<p>The image is just above the comments<br>Video is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MAn8kZc1hbI&lt;/p&gt;

<p>COOL!<br>Can you upload an image of the joystick?</p>

<p>Did you try this?<br>Can the overhang actually be printed?<br>Does it work without just falling off the keyboard every time you touch it?</p>

<p>It work with double sided sticky tape just fine (Check "PrintTo3D" comment).<br>I can Also design it to fit a specific keyboard with "snap", so one won't have to use sticky tape!</p>

<p>Just replace the keys with special PRINTED keys that the joystick can fit into.</p>

<p>I have been meaning make one of these for 10 years. I glad you drew it. Thanks. Also check out my iphone holder and tell me what you think.</p>
