AXIS

axis / [ak-ses] // noun 1. an imaginary line about which a body rotates

Note: This project was created for a model making workshop we held at CCA. For more details check the blog entry here.

 AXIS is unlike any other controller you've used. By adding a center rotation to a familiar geometry. We've open up new interfaces, and experiences both developers and gamer's will love. Our body naturally moves as we're immersed in gaming. Why limit our range of motion by using traditional static controllers? Axis encourage you to fidget.
