The GUNPAD Answered
Hello Frnds! Yesterday when i was playing " FARCRY 4" a very cool idea struck my mind. But i unable to figure out its proper design and circuitry. So i need ur help. As u all know that playing First Person Games using a gamepad is not so easy and also it doesn't give a realistic feel. So i thought to hack a gamepad and embed a gyrosensor/ accelerometer to control the x, y coordinates of the gun's aim. I have made a basic design of how it will look using an old SNES gamepad's cabinet. The left part of the gamepad is freely rotatable upto 90 degrees clockwise and vice versa. See the given gif animation and then read below. Moreover the LT, LB, RT, and RB buttons will obstruct the action of rotating so we can relocate it to another place (SEE the Image). They can be used a Fire, Reload, Secondary Fire and Throwing Grenade during the game.
Lets imagine that we are playing any First Person Game using the gamepad. There is no enemy around us and we are just roaming, discovering. Then suddenly an enemy comes in front of us. We have to kill it but aiming with gamepad analogue stick is tough. Then with our GUNPAD we just have to take the device in "Gun Mode", Aim and Shoot. The enemy's dead and we are safe. Then we can take the GUNPAD back in "Pad Mode" and use the directional buttons to move. SOUNDS COOL!
Now if you have any ideas plz comment or if you can make one plz upload an instructable. Kindly Give my name when performing the latter. Thanks!
