Toy is modified as an Xbox controller and is extremely fun

In the past it has already been seen how some gamers have achieved carry video games and make, for example, that in a calculator can play Doom. They are specialists in modifying electronic objects to play, including toy controls.

A Twitter user recently posted a thread in which he bragged about his achievement: turn a toy controller into a fully functional Xbox controller. So that it would not only remain in something written, he uploaded several videos where he is seen playing with it.

The user Rudeism Twitter user Dylan Beck showed off his achievement by noting that he not only made the Fisher Price toy usable but also it continues to make the factory sounds when its buttons are pressed.

In the demo videos played ‘Elden Ring’ and ‘Tony Hawk Pro Skater’ without a hitch and with the buttons still making the toy’s distinctive clicking noises for children. In order to achieve this, he had to convert the controller using a arduino pro micro boardsome microswitches and a real two-axis joystick, since the one that includes the Fisher Price controller only has that shape and does not work as such.

It also required a 3D printer to make some modifications to the design of the toy and thus ensure that everything could fit inside. Although the demonstration caused many reactions, other users had already made the same modification before and it is also likely that there will be another one soon that will surprise everyone.

How to connect an Xbox controller to an iPhone

It should be noted that not all controls, especially Xbox One, are used to play on iPhone. Because of this, Apple’s support website released what are the four Xbox controllers that could be used on your cell phones:

– Xbox One Wireless Controller with Bluetooth (Model 1708)

– Xbox Elite 2 Wireless Controller

– Xbox Adaptive Controller

– Xbox Wireless Controller (Series S / X edition)

It should be remembered that the Xbox One was released in 2013, and the first controls with which it was released did not have a Bluetooth system, so if a person has this accessory, no matter how much they want, they will not be able to connect it to their iPhone. In fact, It was not until 2016 that Microsoft included this functionality in the controls of its console, when it released the Xbox One S.

In summary, if you have a control manufactured between 2013 and 2016, it is most likely that it will not serve to connect to the cell phone, so in that case you will need to invest in a control that was not manufactured more than five years ago.

Time to connect the controller to the iPhone

Just as it works with PlayStation controls, Xbox controls connect to iPhones via Bluetooth (something obvious, considering the previous point of the article). In fact, it’s as easy as pairing a headset to your cell phone through this feature.

one. Turn on the Xbox controller by holding down the middle button with the X that represents the brand.

two. Now, you need to press and hold the Bluetooth pairing button, which can be located on the top of the controller. Immediately, the remote will start a search for devices with which it can be paired.

3. Go to the iPhone and go to Setting. Open the option bluetooth and I looked for the name of the command in the list that the cell phone shows.

Four. Finally, a message should appear saying Connected and ready!

It should be remembered that compatibility with the control depends on each game, although most of the most famous titles can be played with this accessory.
