3D printing a joystick to control an Xbox game controller

Via the always-informative Maker Update comes news of a new 3D printed game controller joystick mechanism from Akaki Kuumeri.

Akaki has built such devices in the past, but this one transfers all of the functions of the controller to the joystick and uses conventional PLA 3D printing to create extremely clever flexible joints in the translation mechanisms. This is a game-changing way of think about 3D printing and what it can be capable of.
