Micro Star Wars Caanoo Hack
Posted 29 April 2012 - 05:27 AM
I am always impressed with miniatures. There is something awe-inspiring about seeing an object that was originally too large to even fit in a room, to becoming something that can fit in your hand, with the same functionality. Like computers taking up a warehouse, to your fitting on your watch, and doing more than the original. Maybe that is why I adore handhelds. It's so magic to be able to take something I love anywhere I go.
What is really nice is how you machined the joystick. Everything about it is cool.
This makes me wonder if anyone here has done a full case hack. Like, you can't buy a CAANOO without reading people complaints of the joystick, so people will replace it with a D-Pad. I wanted if anyone has like, made a case with extra shoulder buttons to properly play PS One games, or maybe a case with six buttons to better play arcade games and Sega games.

I ended up being featured on about 30 different blogs and most gave a nice nod both to the BYOAC community and this one as well of which I am pleased. As mentioned I'll be dropping back by shortly and really do appreciate how helpful this forum has continually proven itself to be. Great job guys!

Preaching to the choir but re: pots, iirc there are logarithmic and linear pots.
The linear ones increase resistance proportional to the rotation.
The log ones have a log relationship ie 10% turn = 20% rated resistance & 15% travel = 50% etc.
Get the two mixed up and you get some unexpected effects.
