Odd Quake Controller Made Of Mouse, Keyboard, Masking Tape

Odd Quake Controller Made Of Mouse, Keyboard, Masking Tape

In 2006, before Kinect and maybe even before Wii, gamer Niel de la Rouviere decided to make a motion-controller for Quake III. He says he was bored; I say that Niel de la Rouviere, armed with masking tape, was efficient.

He uploaded a video of his makeshift contraption to YouTube yesterday. I’m impressed that it works, but I don’t think I’d like to play a first-person shooter that way. If anyone out there wants to recreate de la Rouviere’s keyboard-gun-tape controller, let us know how it goes.

  • That… is… outstanding. And not just the nostalgia value added with the rig. I really wanna try that now, but I have no old keyboard/mouse. Maybe from work…
