Hack Controllers

Creative Game Controller Workshop

Saturday, Nov 20, 1-3,
Studio XX, Montreal, QC
Organized by Cindy Poremba, with support from Amanda Williams and Heather Kelley.

The Creative Game Controller Workshop took place as part of the 2010 Htmlles festival. The central focus was on tearing apart and creatively using old USB keyboards and similar scrap electronics to create unique videogame controllers. No previous electronics or soldering experience is required! The concept was based on  Stephanie Rothenberg’s Usernomics 1.0, and similar workshops hosted by Eyebeam.
