I wanted to learn how hard it was to make a controller and figured a two button controller would be much easier project. Here's the end result:

Man, that's amazing. I'll buy one of those from you.

This is exactly what I imagined when I saw the thread title.

Hope you made a hunk pipe out of the other shoe.

#4 Edited by Sarumarine (2168 posts) -

I say good choice using a shoe. That looks fantastic.

#5 Posted by EarthBowl (164 posts) -

That is awesome! But it must be difficult to hold for a long period of time.

#6 Edited by Dalai (6991 posts) -

That controller's got sole.

#7 Posted by GlenTennis (3144 posts) -

That's fucking awesome.

This was better than anything I imagined when I saw this post.

Oh man, this is amazing.

So how do I use it? Do I put it on my foot and perform a divekick?

#11 Posted by MikeJFlick (436 posts) -

I don't see a start button.

#12 Edited by Ubersmake (754 posts) -

That is genius.

#13 Posted by Turambar (6673 posts) -

Make another one to allow for left foot vs right foot death matches.

#14 Posted by Orbitz (67 posts) -

Amazing!

#15 Posted by Letter11 (29 posts) -

You're so ready for DiveKick. And man is the shoe so appropriate.

#16 Posted by ThomasG666 (154 posts) -

lol! Looks cool!

#17 Posted by Redbullet685 (6024 posts) -

This is awesome, but I see you made it for the Xbox 360, and Divekick is currently only coming to PS3 so the controller is useless

#18 Edited by awesomeusername (4153 posts) -

Haha! I wasn't expecting that. That's just hilarious! LAUGH LAUGH CHUCKLE

That's pretty good. Mad Catz should get all over this.

#22 Posted by MrCaptain (364 posts) -

That pretty awesome, its even more awesome if you can use it while you wear it.

If it uses the same drivers as an Xbox controller then you can still use it on the PC.

That is one BOOTLEG ass controller.

I look forward to the official DK tournaments where people bring their own custom controllers. Power to the people!

#25 Posted by MattyFTM (14340 posts) -

That's awesome. I mean, you could hunk a dunk whilst divekicking with that controller.

You've inspired me to do the same.

This just gave me a horrible idea, remember that dead island riptide boob statue? What if they did a boob controller for Divekick? 2 boobs one with a yellow nipple and one with a blue nipple. How freaking stupid would that be? I'm a stupid genius!

Great job on that controller, it looks freaking awesome! Can you still use that as a shoe?

just repurpose one of those boob mousepads and put buttons in there.

Yeah my plan is to greenlightdivekick.com and get it on steam which is why I went with an xbox controller. The dashboard ui is mostly to make a better picture (and button testing). I've got the two buttons working as I want, but need to I'm also not sure what my long term plan for navigation should be. Currently you have to reach in the shoe and push the contacts directly which doesn't seem sustainable.

I've started work on the second shoe, and will document step by step and make a blog post/how to. As for where I got parts I picked them all up (except for the controller which I had laying around) from http://www.focusattack.com/

Awesome! Hearing about this made me really wanna tear apart a wired Xbox controller.

Okay, I didn't know it was coming to Steam. But now that I do, the controller is fine. Its a great design.

#35 Posted by sirdesmond (1234 posts) -

I really am digging this idea. I want to see someone play DiveKick while wearing one of these.

#36 Edited by captain_max707 (479 posts) -

Put one button on each foot, and watch the hilarity ensue as Divekick becomes like DDR...

That would be great.

#37 Posted by casper_ (901 posts) -

ANYONE

#40 Posted by ProfessorEss (7278 posts) -

@aquacadet: Awesome.

Question: Can your foot still go in the shoe? It would be interesting to try and play it using heel and toe taps.

Also, a pair of shoes with one button on each'd be pretty dope.

This is so much more amazing then I thought it would be when I read this post.

#46 Posted by Amafi (522 posts) -

So did you just take apart a 360 controller, rip it's guts out and solder the leads on the PCB to the buttons? Because that's my plan, except for the prototype I'm gonna use an old busted usb keyboard. Going with a more traditional square box made out of wood look for the enclosure and some big illuminated 100m domed buttons I found, I just hope I can get it to work.

#47 Posted by OurSin_360 (830 posts) -

I would have,um, cleaned the show first but that's pretty dope.

#48 Edited by LandonRobinson (95 posts) -

Would you mind posting how you got started making the controller? What parts did you use? Other than the shoe. :)

It's Gotcha all over again.

Awesome. I'd been thinking about doing the same thing, but then I remembered I have no kind of mechanical skill.

I was going to turn one of my old Crocs into a controller, though.
