lunging_man_ass: Wow, Fark, what other "geek chic" articles can we post?Is anyone else getting tired of the bastardization of geek culture so everyone can feel smarter about themselves? I see it on dating sites all the time, with regular girls talking about how "geeky" they are because they saw some episodes of Dr. Who, and David Tennant is such a handsome guy, and OMG, have you read...
Smidge204: I appreciate the attention to detail he put into it, but building a LEGO shell around otherwise functional electronic components is generally not that impressive as a technical feat.I built this like six years ago to play Frets on Fire.[www.smidgeindustriesltd.com image 850x268]Complete with shoulder strap. The Tremolo bar is the up/down arrows so it can be used to navigate the in-game menus. Escape button is tucked down in the lower right corner of the body. Otherwise it's just a LEGO chassis to hold the circuit board from an old PS/2 keyboard and some buttons.This contraption is a few years older still: [www.smidgeindustriesltd.com image 530x690]Guts of a dead joystick held together with LEGO. Too much slop in the mechanisms to really be useful for gaming, though it did work. The iteration after this one (which I couldn't find complete pics of) had self-centering and relocated the X axis potentiometer into the Y axis gimbal to eliminate the fork linkage.[www.smidgeindustriesltd.com image 605x581][www.smidgeindustriesltd.com image 625x359]=Smidge=

He used the membrane switches from a keyboard and aligned all those lego parts to hit the correct switch.
