I really enjoy playing Wii-Punchout on my Treadmill it’s fun exercise but I’ve peaked out on it. One of my hobbies is I like making motion/interactive peripherals I do a lot of Kinect/VR experiments with mixed results, I project railshooters on the wall and play with a light gun one day I want my own holodeck but that’s going to have to wait awhile.
So I’m undertaking a new build, it’s not original but an old mainstay of the arcade.
I intend to build a similar peripheral to a Punchmania cabinet but I want to modify an exercise grade kick boxing stand.
So far the working idea is modify existing equipment and for the inputs I am thinking a generic Dance Dance (DDR) pad would do the trick but I’ve never gutted one and I don’t know want to expect inside other than it can obviously take the hit and register the input. I’ve also considered Guitar Hero drums I was also wondering if anyone knew the potential of finding Punchmania replacement parts to get the pads.
Nutshell = Anyone have any better ideas/feedback of how to rig up the inputs before I start ordering stuff?
(I will be emulating on PC for Glovepie and flexibility so I am not format locked)
