We helped Freeka (from Sgure) to ghetto-ize the PS3 controller (6axis) he use for controlling his music live set with Max for Live


The PS3 controller have accelerometer, 2 analog joystick, 12 inputs (digital or analogue) and 4 digital inputs, and 1 digital output and communicate by bluetooth with computer

    Pretty sure he took the controller guts out and rewired the buttons to new switches as a custom controller for a different application. Not much left probably other than the pcb and batteries from the original.

    You're right. We rewired all the buttons.

    We just keep the PCB, batteries and joysticks
