I have heard here and there that there are
some of you out there who've investigated
opening up and modifying USB videogame
controllers for your own purposes. While it
has sounded interesting in general, the
Max beginner's workshop in Chicago has moved
me to ask the question here generally.
Have you personally "bent" videogame controllers
for use via the hi object to construct your
own interfaces? While I'm generally curious
about these, I'd be more interested in what online
resources that describe this process you might be
aware of. I suppose it's possible that Nic Collins
may deal with this sort of thing in his new book
"Handmade Electronic Music: The Art of Hardware
Hacking", but my copy is, apparently, still on
order with the publisher.
I'll be happy to collect and format/forward
this information, should I receive any. Please
feel free to contact me directly via email.
