That’S How She Rolls: Girl Builds Custom Katamari Controller

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  May 26, 2009


Hackster Queen (of All Cosmos, naturally) Kellbot has created what may become the ultimate Katamari Damacy experience: a spherical controller, so you can roll while you roll. It’s enough to make me want to learn how to wire things together.

With a metal ball, an optical mouse, bits of PS2 controllers, and a little help from Arduino, Kellbot put together the roll-a-riffic controller of all Katamari lover’s dreams. Now if only we could get that in, say, a giant beach ball form.

Kellbot calls the controller “a hella fun way” to experience Katamari Damacy, and the video footage makes me want to agree. It also looks hella accurate, while we’re throwing qualifiers around.

A video used to be embedded here but the service that it was hosted on has shut down.
