Nothing like a deadline to hurry me up...
As many of you probably remember, I showed off my Mastercontrol5200 Playstation to 5200 controller adapter in the forums here a (long-ish) while back. Anyway, I had a self-imposed deadline of getting them ready for production by CGExpo this year.
To make a long story short, I'm going to have some demo units available for CGExpo. I don't think I'll have time to get enough built to sell, but they'll otherwise be complete and maybe I'll see if I can't donate a couple as door-prizes or something.
Anyway, here's the question-- if anyone from here is going to be showing off their 5200 wares at CGE and would be interested in a loaner Mastercontrol5200 to show, drop me an email! (firstname.lastname@example.org)
I've got the 'hard' stuff done finally (custom strain-relief molding for the cables, milling machine setup for modifying the plastc cases, components for all connectors purchased, etc.), so I'll be going to 'production' shortly.
Feature-wise the unit is about the same as described here:
(The cables now have molded strain-reliefs on the ends that go in the box)
The only new addition (but it's incredibly cool!
) is that I have added support for the new Logitech 2.4GHz wireless controllers. I didn't think that would be a big deal, but it's probably my favorite feature now... Wireless analog control that's actually *good* with the 5200.
Anyway, anyone that wants to show one in their booth at CGE, please let me know. I'll cut you a deal on the price of it when the show's done and/or we could work something out if you wanted to raffle it or something. I'm guessing I'll have maybe half a dozen or so available. Probably the only 'catch' is that I'd like to give you a little stack of 1/4 page flyers to put on the table next to it during the show...
