Homebrew controller makes UMPC gaming more practical

Updated on 03 May 2008 by


Danmiddle2 over at the Micropctalk.com forums has come up with a very clever controller solution for making mobile gaming on his VAIO UX more practical. Using a “Genius MaxFire Pandora Pro Foldable Mini USB Gamepad for PC”, Dan connected the two halves of the USB controller back to back. He then mounted the connected pieces to a dummy CF card (pictured here), using the CF slot as the mechanism in which to secure the controller. The controller then conveniently plugs into the USB slot right above the CF card slot. As you can see in the video below, Dan is able to play Unreal Tournament 2004 very effectively, using the front face of the controller to move his character, the back to shoot and jump, and the mouse pad on the UX to aim. Very ingenious! Head over to the original thread for more details.
