I wanted to design a prototype joystick in cloth after learning about the properties of the material Velostat, as well as the example piece with a penny on a string that allowed a person to pick a particular LED to light up. Initially, on the day it was introduced, I made a quick modular circuit to test those resistive properties. From there, I thought of how it could be used for a variable button pressure button for a game controller, and while I knew that buttons were possible, I did not know if a joystick was, and as a result, I attempted to create one.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
