Keyboard Joystick! by eranglr Apr 18, 2010

Featured Thing!

Description

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 :)

COOL!
Can you upload an image of the joystick?
Did you try this?
Can the overhang actually be printed?
Does it work without just falling off the keyboard every time you touch it?
It work with double sided sticky tape just fine (Check "PrintTo3D" comment).
I can Also design it to fit a specific keyboard with "snap", so one won't have to use sticky tape!
Just replace the keys with special PRINTED keys that the joystick can fit into.
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.
