Bottomless Joystick

Bottomless Joystick is a mid-air interaction device which produces the maneuvering feeling of a joystick without the need for a table. By utilizing a motor-powered gimbal mechanism, a counterweight, and IMU, our interface makes a virtual anchoring point in midair, and it provides a haptic sensation similar to that of a conventional joystick.
