I'm really looking forward to the FT controller. So far, it is looking good! I saw a lot of custom controller for that game and it is really amazing. If you are going to sell them, I imagine you are going to make something more simplified.I'm definitely still throwing a lot of design ideas around. This brook ps4 fight board still seems like the best option for its size even if there are no analog sticks, so I'd like to use it to make at least one finished mini-controller (micro-controller? Microcontroller powered LED micro-controller.) I think I should figure out some more major things before going straight back to the case design, like maybe having the the R2 and L2 buttons in the middle of the face buttons for easier access. I can also redesign it a bit since there won't be any anlog sticks. The wiring is also going to be a big hurdle so I think I'm going to try to get a bunch of ribbon cable to clean that up.
You don't think wires are going to take up that much space until you're trying to close it :p
I also tweeted about this but I've been trying to make 3D printed flat keycaps since they're pretty pricey from pimpmykeyboards ($2 each.)
These are great since I can make them super low-profile, but I'm having a hard time getting them perfectly straight and sticking well to the switches. They would be absolutely fantastic for the FT controller and the macro keypad (and my current keypads as well) so I can cut down on cost and not have them be way too expensive.
