Custom Game Controller for Tablet

Post by electromaster64 » Sat Dec 22, 2012 9:51 am

Has anyone ever made a custom controller for a tablet? I just bought a Nexus 7 and was thinking about gutting an XBOX 360 controller and using one of those snap on hard shells to build a controller that would snap onto the tablet. Any thoughts?

Cool idea. Though I might recommend basing it off of a PS3 controller, it would be easier to get it working on the Android side of things. You would need to root your device (if you haven't already), but this app on my modded Nook Color works great: ... ller&hl=en
