Playing some types of games is not so confortable using game controller compared with playing them on PC using keyboard and mouse. This is, of course, mostly related of FPS games. It’s definitely possible to play those games with controller, and lots’ of gamers does that. But for some using keyboard and mouse is better.

Then Microsoft has presented smart glass software for windows phone and windows 8, it was quite exciting to hear that it would be possible to control Xbox from pc or phone. The reality is a little bit disappointing – yes, it’s possible to control but only dashboard, and some games that have built-in support for smart glass. Then the game is launched, the gamer has to grab controller. So what will do, we will hack the Xbox controller, plug it to the Arduino, make some software for PC and windows phone, to give some support for keyboard and mouse in fps games.
