DIY Inspiration Article - Bike controller for pC games Help. - Right, I love my sim games, Trucks, Trains, Bikes, Aircraft you name it. I have peripherals bought for all bar bikes. I cannot find a cheap one so had the idea to make my own, as a test. Laugh if you want ;)Take a 360/PS3 controller, have two long pieces of metal OR actual motorbike/cycle handlebars. Make a circular grip around the left thumb stick to "tilt" side to side the whole construction as to lean in game. Obviously the controller is sideways (shorter logic board area = more tilt position) then Up/Down becomes Left/Right.I cannot REALLY draw it, as it might look well off, but I hope that makes sense.I also thought of having a tube that when used like a throttle on a bike (twisting down) connected via wire or soemthing would push down the triggers via an accuator (I think that's what it is, tube with a "bump" on on area?)Something like: Twist the throttle, trigger gets pushed down as to accelarate in game. Return throttle to starting position= throttle offHope this makes sense and sorry if it's long winded. I have the base idea in my head but not TOO sure how to progress. I just want to finish at least one project I set out to do.BASIC image of the idea: http://ift.tt/2gWyL6c note I have never made anything myself, be it wood, metal, wires, circuit boards etc but I want to try at least.I don't really have a budget, it can be done over time. But cheap=good.Thanks.
