Are you a guitar hero whose tired of the same old songs? Or maybe you’re a dancer whose ready for a new revolution? A few enterprising hackers have found some interesting pairings that just might change the way you think about that old Dance Dance Revolution (DDR) pad, or give you a reason to build your own guitar controller!
OpenChord, a Guitar Hero-style game controller created by open-source hardware hackers from real guitars, has been re-purposed to emulate a Playstation 3 DualShock controller. Instead of using it as a rhythm controller, one of the OpenChord team have paired it with Street Fighter 4 to create some sweet chin music. Check out the video for an example of Chun Li strumming her way to victory!
