What are you even talking about? I mentioned that insurance companies don't cover the cost of people getting devices at all, not my specific stuff. They don't cover the expensive "professional" either.

Insurance companies don't insure against The Hack engineering methodology!?!?

You seem perplexed at the notion that insurance companies won't insur your hacked-together design methodology device. Their actuaries crunched the numbers (with a magic wand) and calculated that your hack design is 65% likely to kill someone 100% of the time;well what about the 35% who survived, why should they miss out? 

The items that cost a ridiculous amount, I agree should be cheaper (why, well I just do that is why). Unfortnately if you want something in nature to last a while it seems that that part of nature designated the task of designing it must perform some due diligence. This takes real engineers with real talent and some pride thrown in to boot.

The client says: I want a sun not a A Bell (Bell Labs) (okay he stole the idea but who cares about that), light bulb, can you design one of them for me? No it is too hard, how about 13489714305987134095871345 light bulbs glued together with a bonus connection diagram? 

You want an idea on how to reposition those black boxes quickly and cheaply, I would try using the same software you used to put them there in the first place, either that or place the controller on the ground and jump up and down on it.

Re: which controller is the best design ergonomically?

The joystick is still very much there, just miniaturized.

As far as what controller is the best ergonomically, I think different people would tell you different answers. It all depends on the size and shape of your hands.

if you make a lever effect it make almost the double of the force

which controller is the best design ergonomically?

My video playing games took sometime with the Atari box and I don't know why but I remember well the simple joystick. Then I was kind of surprised when I started seen that the controls were changing in other consoles. Looks like the joystick is out for good as no console got it back. This makes me wonder why? Is it that games got more complex and thus required more buttons? And the next question is ... which of the controllers out there would be the best design ... ergonomically?

I could theoretically print extenders to change the orientation. I'm not sure how much effect I could have on the pressure required though.

well it took me almost a month to get the 6 screws out and take a few pictures. We'll see how quickly I can get it done.

that is the exact reason I'm considering the imperfect placement. It requires no electrical modification, only mechanical.

you also can go another way that is the mechanical solution:

Make some king of laverage to bring the buttons to the top of the controller that way is necessary less force and you make them more acessible

Good luck to you Caleb. I hope the EET readers can help you find some solutions. It's for a good cause and it's an interesting problem.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
