Console Kiosks Controllers?
« on: August 06, 2003, 05:57:27 pm »
You know when you goto gamestop, ebgames, walmart , toys r us, or somethign like that and they have those kiosks with either an xbox or a ps2 or gamecube running inside? Well does anyone have any idea how you could design sometype of mounting so that you could buy any generic controller and mount it like that (with the hard plastic and you see no wires just the controller). Because I'm building a cab with a rotating control panel and i thought it would be a cool idea to have maybe a real snes and n64 controller mounted but without the wires and mess...any ideas?

Next time you are at one of those kiosks play a game as long as you can stand it.  

It will then become apparent that console games are meant to be played sitting down, at a distance from the monitor.  :)

You can buy a chair that has it on it, and than utilize the 5 year warranty. Call them up and tell them you need to order a replacement... a couple of them.

hmm that seems like a pretty good idea, I could have it least 4 pads hooked up (all I would consider hooking up anyway) with just two of those covers sense they are pretty long anyway...thanks tick!

Actually, I know what part you are refering to, but those things are usually kind of limp. They may not be sturdy enough for this particular purpose.

If I were you I would consider using wireless controllers. That way you can sit back and relax, but at the same time you won't have the wire mess.

I thought of wireless, but wanted the controlls to be more integrated into the cab, also do u still think it would be to flemsy with  some type of metal or plastic insert?

Maybe the flexible part of a microphone stand? You can get those in various stiffness's.

A cheap similar thing would be flexible conduit.
