  1. So I'm looking for a joystick meant to be used by disabled persons who has
    hardly any power left in their fingers. I googled of course and found
    numerous sticks but no joy :) Anyone has a link or an idea?

  3. Young ones. They have Duchennes disease and seldom grow older the 35 years.
    Of course they also like to play other games but simple flight simulators
    are fun. However, the ordinary joy sticks become too heavy and too strong.

    Here some are playing different
    games. We need - among other things - joysticks for the game controller
    adapters.

    Perhaps. But they would certainly need custom embedded code
    and hardware to interface to standard gaming machines and
    software, I think. That may be true, regardless, though.

    Cross the shafts of two potentiometers and tie them together (I used
    paperclip wire)

    Mount one pot so that the shaft is horisontal mount a handle to the
    other. I used 1M pots and this worked well connected to a PC
    joystick socket
