Well -- here it is! My first REAL custom controller. I put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into this (Okay, so not really.. LOL)! I made SO MANY mistakes, and I know it's not perfect -- but I wanted it as close to perfection as possible as I learned some new creative skills. I really enjoyed making this -- and I look forward to making some more in the future!
-ABOUT THE CONTROLLER:-
This controller was inspired by the Pokémon series created and released by Nintendo in 1996 for the Gameboy handheld system. It is modeled after Pikachu, one of the vast number of species in Pokémon.
(What is a "Pikachu"? = en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pikachu
More info on what Pokémon is here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pok
The front plate of the controller represents Pikachu's face. The center Guide Button, which is normally inhabited by the Xbox logo, has been customized with a Pokéball, accented by white Back and Start buttons. The original lights surrounding the Pokéball have been replaced and personally soldered by Yours Truly with red LEDs in quadrants 1 & 2, and white LEDs in quadrants 3 & 4. This same color scheme can also be found on the controller's bumper and trigger buttons on the topside. The black battery pack and trim on the underside of the controller complete the controller for a well-rounded balance.
I may put a little more work into this as ideas come up, but I think I'm pretty much done with this remote for now.
