3D print a pair of L1R1 Trigger Buttons for your phone! It works with any touchscreen phone! It helps improve your aim and makes it easier to play FPS shooter games & Battle Royale games. (PUBG Mobile, Fortnite, Rules of Survival, Knives Out)
It simply clips and slides on the edge of your phone and instantly gives you that classic Play Station L1 & R1 buttons!

I used Solidworks to design my lever action mechanism. I kept the design as simple as possible to eliminate the use of plastic supports. Each button comes two parts, the clip and the lever. It is joined by a metal pin that was cut down from a rivet's pin. I used aluminum duct tape as my conductive path and contact points. I added some heat tubing to prevent the aluminum tape from scratching the phone's screen and at the same time, it acts as the cushion.
Overview and Background
Here's an in-depth video tutorial I made on making your own L1R1! The video will assist you from gathering the materials you need to building the project itself. Feel free to check out my YouTube channel for more fun projects!
Lesson Plan and Activity
Learning How Capacitive Touchscreens Work
Unlike resistive touch screens, capacitive screens do not use the pressure of your finger to create a change in the flow of electricity. Instead, they work with anything that holds an electrical charge – including human skin. Capacitive screens can be found just in any modern day smartphone. This project will show you how sheets of metal can transmit the change of capacitance from your finger tips to your phone's screen.

I highly recommend to print the parts one by one. Printing them as a set could cause problems on the pin holes since they are very close to the edge.
