Namco NeGcon

As a game designer, I soon understood that controllers are the core ingredient of video games. It's the main connection between the man and the machine (console). It's the component that bridges between the virtual and physical world.

So over time I developed a deep fascination with controllers and started collecting them. The NeGcon is one of my favorites because it maps the experience of turning, accelerating and braking to a physical mechanism of twisting.

It was not successful mainly because the core design principle of a good controller is the concept of minimum movement for maximum precision.
