Maker and gamer Jatin Patel, from the Teenenggr YouTube channel, has been working on a curious project that we want to share with you today. Usually he is sharing tutorials and informative videos about Arduino and Raspberry Pi projects, but this one was rather unique.

How to innovate and pimp gaming vibration?
Since Nintendo added the Rumble Pak to their Nintendo 64 controllers in 1997, feeling vibration as you played video games slowly became the new normal. Future consoles would always include this as a standard in any upcoming controllers in the following years, including companies such as Sony (PlayStation) and Microsoft (Xbox). Now, how to get rumble into PC gaming as well?
But what if you wanted more immersion? How to get an even stronger sensation when things blow up in your game or when you’re seeing any kind of action that would usually simply trigger a subtle rumble in your handheld controller? Teenenggr built this fantastic device that translated the trigger input to an oversized motor to rumble everything. Watch the video below and share it with your friends.
