Finally, the perfect joystick for  StarCraft

The proprietors of fighting game fan site Shoryuken posed an interesting question to its community recently: Can you design a functional fight stick for playing StarCraft 2? It appears you can.

The winning design – as demonstrated by "Mauricio" in the video above – sports a modded Ultrastik joystick as the mouse, and about a billion Sanwa buttons in LED housing for illumination. It may look odd, but it apparently does everything a keyboard and mouse can, using one USB input.

As it's a fan mod, you can't actually purchase this device. Learning how to make one yourself, though, sounds like a great resumé booster, right below "Proficient strategist in StarCraft 2."
