An Xbox 360 Wireless Controller modded with a 3V tiltBoard (available at adamthole.com) and a switch that allows the user to switch between the tiltBoard and the analog stick for input.
I have been noticing several comments on the web claiming that my tilt controller has too much lag to be worthwhile. Some people claim that they saw 'seconds' of lag. I can understand how people can think that the controller has some lag associated with it. When watching someone play a game it is hard to judge whether the controller has lag or not because the games don't usually have instantaneous response. If I am playing a racing game and am turning left then decide to turn right, it doesn't happen instantaneously. It is built into the game controls. In this video I show you the Xbox 360 tilt controller in the Windows XP 'Game Controllers' control panel. It shows you the X and Y positions in real time. More info: http://www.adamthole.com

This is a video of a Rube Goldberg ballot-casting machine with an entertainment theme. My Jac-Cen-Del High School team made it in 2004. It uses three separate microcontrollers and includes a C02 powered roller coaster and an electro-magnetic trapeze. If you like this project, check out my other projects at http://www.adamthole.com
