Tangible Interaction: Game Controller

 

This game controller wraps around a computer so the user can have a close eye to what they are pressing and feel like they are almost using a tablet. On the right side are the basic, commonly used directional buttons (up, down, right, and left) and the left side has the less commonly used, power booster. The container also has a stand on the back for extra support.  The controller uses five standard push buttons and an Arduino Micro.
