Body game controller complete development

Design & Engineering

CATEGORY:
Machine Design, Structural Design

SCOPE:
Development of the mechanical construction for a body game controller, which is basically a game controller – only it is controlled with the body. On the top of the red plate one can see the buttons which can be pressed, and that same platform is able to rotate in all axes using a universal joint. So, by using body movements while sitting or standing on it one can send controls to a console or a PC and experience gaming on another level. This could also be used as a platform for certain simulators or workouts. The goal was to design the mechanical components that will support the body weight and allow the necessary movements. We have attached pictures of how it can be used at the bottom of the page.

SOFTWARE:
SolidWorks, SolidWorks Weldments, KeyShot
