Title (EN) DEVICE THAT IMPROVES THE SMOOTH ENGAGEMENT OF ANALOGUE JOYSTICKS
(FR) DISPOSITIF AMELIORANT LA PROGRESSIVITE DES JOYSTICKS ANALOGIQUES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The invention relates to an adaptive, removable device that is used to improve the smooth engagement of analogue joysticks. The inventive device, once installed on the joystick, forces the user gradually to increase the force that he/she exerts on the joystick in order to increase the inclination of said joystick. The device consists of a body (1) which is made from a compressible elastic material and which is characterised in that it comprises a central opening (2) which is used to install said device on, or remove it from, the joystick (4+5) by means of elasticity. Once the device has been installed, the joystick lever (5) passes through the centre of the body (1) thereof, said body being compressed between the projecting part (4) and the housing (6) of the joystick (4+5). When the user tilts the joystick (4+5), he/she exerts a counteracting force to that from the body of the device (1). According to the invention, the device is intended, in particular, to improve the smooth engagement of analogue joysticks of gamepad-type levers for computer and game consoles.
(FR)Dispositif adaptable et amovible améliorant la progressivité des joysticks analogiques. L'invention concerne un dispositif qui, après installation sur le joystick, oblige l'utilisateur a augmenter progressivement la force qui'il exerce surn le joystick pour accentuer l'inclinaison de ce dernier. Le dispositif se présente sous la forme d'un corps (1) constitué de matière compressible e élastique, caractérisé par un orifice central (2) qui permet de l'installer/désinstaller sur le joystick (4+5) par élasticité. Après installation le corps (1) du dispositif est traversé en son centre (2) par le levier du joystick (5), est compressé entre la partie proéminente (4) et le bâti (6)du joystick (4+5). Lorsque l'utilisateur incline le joystick (4+5) il exerce une force antagoniste a celle du corps du dispositif (1). Le dispositif selon l'invention est particulièrement destiné à améliorer la progressivité des joysticks analogiques des manettes de type gamepad pour console de jeu et ordinateur.
