I hope you enjoy building it and playing all the joystick controlled apps on your iPad.
Step 1: Gather Materials
1. A Nerf dart (with a suction cup end)
2. A chess piece (a bishop is the best)
3. A bouncy ball
4. Scotch Brite non-scratch cleaning sponge (most any scratch resistant sponge should work)
5. Aluminum foil (8" x 8")
7. A hot glue gun
1. A single hole punch
Step 2: Assemble the Structure
Step 3: Wrap Your Structure
Use the scissors to cut a small hole in the base, roughly the width of a pencil.
Step 4: Prepare the Sponge
Use the single hole punch (if available) or scissors to cut a hole through the center of the circular sponge.
Line up the hole in the sponge with the hole in the bottom of the foil-covered piece, then use the hot glue gun to glue the sponge in place. Do not use too much glue because the sponge still needs to have contact with the foil for the joystick to work.
Step 5: Attach the Suction Cup
Insert the plastic shaft of the dart through the hole in the sponge and into the hole in the bottom of the chess piece. Use the hot glue gun to glue it into place.
Step 6: Have Fun
