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 controller you've used. By adding a center rotation to a familiar geometry, we've added a new interface and experience that both developers and gamers will love. Our body naturally moves as we're immersed in gaming. Why limit the range of motion by using traditional static controllers? Axis encourage you to fidget.
