In this Instructable, I will show you how to make a 'LEGO Mindstorms' carrier to hold your wireless xbox 360 controller for you while you walk around, (or if you're just waiting for a game to start and you can't be bothered holding it!)

Step 1: Photos

Step 12: 11

Picture of 11

Cut a small piece of plastic tubing, (this does come with some LEGO Technic and LEGO Mindstorms sets). This piece must fit snuggly between the yellow pices as shown in the second image.

Step 13: 12

Collect the pieces in image 1 and push them through the carrier in order so that it loks like image 2.

Step 14: Instructable Completed

You have how completed this Instructable! If you don't have all the pieces, just try to improvise. If you have all the pieces and you have made this, good on you. Now you can try it out, go ahead, put your controller in it and walk around your house. as long as the controller isn't wired, you should be able to walk all around your house with the headset plugged in and talk to your friends.

The carrier can be placed over your belt or hang over your pocket if it is big enough. The two rounded pieces should easily fit over the edge of belts etc.

Don't forget, you must insert the controller into the carrier upside down, as I am wearing it in the picture.

IF the carrier keeps breaking (mine doesn't but I'm sure it could with constant use), I would recommend super glueing the pieces together. (That is, of course, if you don't mind not being able to use them again).

wilsonater (author)DrWeird1172008-09-09

DrWeird117 (author)wilsonater2008-09-09

you never know when your going to have to pull out that xbox 360 controller! nice job!

lol, too right

volund (author)2008-05-29

I'm going to make one of these to go on my new computer (which will have a 360 controller). I may also make 2 more for my headsets. nice job, very easy and useful.

wilsonater (author)volund2008-05-30

great! and thanks! by the way, if you have a laptop, the carrier will slot over the back of the screen when it's open, if not, you could add some more pieces to make it deeper, then hook it onto your screen. (just an idea for you to toy with).

volund (author)wilsonater2008-05-31

I'm probably going to extend the top portion of the unit to slot over the top of my thermaltake armor cas :D

Hellchild (author)2008-05-27

please tell me the point of this

wilsonater (author)Hellchild2008-05-28

the point, my friend, is that you can carry your beloved xbox 360 controller around the house with you while talking to your friends using the headset. You can quickly go to grab a bite to eat or a drink while continuing to talk to your friends.

Hellchild (author)wilsonater2008-05-28

ok, now I get it, and now I think that this is pretty cool

wilsonater (author)Hellchild2008-05-29

thanks

Now from what I cant see in the pictures It looks like the analog pads may be pushed off of center which can be a bad thing if they are pegged at the extreme edge of there range of movement. If they are pegged you should redesign the holder being as this will destroy the analog pads. other wise cool.

the analog aticks are strraight, centred. in fat, they are what make the controller fit snugly into the carrier.

wilsonater (author)wilsonater2008-05-28

*in fact

cool
