Force Factory :: Microsoft Corp., Hardware Group

Force Factory was a Developer Studio plug-in for creating forces for force feedback devices like the Microsoft Sidewinder Force Feedback joy stick. As lead designer of the group, I presented and sold the need to have design on this project, researched the user (game developers), and defined and specified the UI.

Gaming Device Control Panel :: Microsoft Corp., Hardware Group

Re-designed all the gaming device control panels with an updated, device-centric interface and dynamic feedback. Given the constraint of only 16 colors, I believe we pushed this interface as far as possible.

Game Device Profiler :: Microsoft Corp., Hardware Group

My design charter was "make it game like!" OK. How about a Klingon tricorder with a device centric interface. A tritanium shell for stopping phaser blasts; a multi-state 3D depiction of the gaming device with a direct input link from the external device.
