"D" -Pad Workio just like Magic (Will Merlin stay or Go)

The "D"  pad (aka directional pad NSEW ) is now operational.

Here it is being tested in the Blender Game engine, practising my turbo jumping.


PS4 Single Handed Joystick Digitals 4,5,6,7,10 - Analog's Lx,Ly,Rx,Ry Workio

Mounted the DIgital Switches permanently with epoxy resin so no turing back now.

The Top Joystick is also operational, the blue carriage can be rotated so the user can adjust for optimal comfort.

ToDo List :-

(1) Top "D-Pad"  (awaiting tactile switches)

(2) Four Game buttons (aka Square/Circle/Triangle/Cross using conductive switches)


Menu Workio ! (re-edit :-p )

Custom Joystick for people who have use of only one hand.

edit :- (Gareth :-)

This is the first integrated working part of the controller aka "The Menu System" that enables the basic housekeeping of the Playstation 4.

MRL is helping a great deal for debugging using the Joystick service.


L1 trigger design Workio (Hori controller), InMoov Finger sensor possibilities

Workio - First "Live" testing of the top trigger finger mech.

The concept "Hori" uses is so simple and would make a great finger pressure sensor for InMoov.


Hori aka PS4 Joystick Mappings (I have a question)

Gareth's picture

This is part of my PS4 Single handed Joystick controller.

(not for confusion - the above graphic of Hori controller is not on the MRL Joystick service, its a paint mash for my reference).

These are the mappings I have traced prior to desoldering the main board (just to keep a track of directions when shoehorned into the new system).

I have a Question :-

There are 5 buttons that do not show up on the MRL mappings.


Emotion detection in faces

Gael recently pointed us at the an open source project that had trained a few different neural networks in Keras to detect emotions on detected faces.  More info here.

Updates - Log Service Sparkles

After several coding jams the Log service is starting to have sparkles.  I wanted to make it "better" than eclipse's console to quickly see status and diagnose issues.  Having a good logging system is the cornerstone of workyness :)

 


PS4 Single Handed Joystick

I have had a request to make a custom PS4 Left handed Joystick for a person who is recovering from a "Stroke", thought it would be interesting reference.

Above is just a first a first bite of the cherry, subject to many/many changes.
