[SIZE="4"]This was my original thought

[SIZE="4"]I have ordered all the parts and some have arrived already but the most important part is still to arrive from the US and that’s the mounting cradle, we have changed the game controller so as to be able to hold the unit better , here is a Photoshop off what it should look like when finished, we hope
Here is a demo of the real thing

I just made a tempore mounting plate and mounted the UX380N and SONY game controller and tested it out it works fine but, FORGET IT MILES TO HEAVEY and won't be able to hold it long, it would be good for weight training I had to go back to the original controller I was going to use

Sorry no I found this video on YouTube when I decided to do the same thing I found another video which shows how it was mounted, believe me when I say it was a very bad hack job, they destroyed the Sony UX case and the controller but it works have a look you will see it towards the end

Mine is a lot different that it does not modify or hack the Sony UX or controller
I will keep you posted, all the parts have been ordered and just waiting for them to arrive then make some parts and then put it together

The cradle has turned up to day and it's perfect now I can start designing the Z bracket and put it all together, here is what it will look like when it is put together and that should be next week

Awesome Vars, you should document the process so others might be able to recreate the mod. Will the controller be removable once it's been attached, so that you can use the UX normally then snap the controller on when you want it?

I have some good news and some very bad news, first I have worked out the final design of the bracket that connect the cradle and the joystick, very simple and now the very bad news my best friend has just had a serious of heart attacks and he is very sick you see I am disabled and rely on him to do the little bit of filing, cutting and drilling for my projects but now I would rather see him get well so I tried to get am engineering work shop to do it for me, they ether won't do it or charge a fortune to make 3 cuts and drill 9 holes $100 +
I Just Cant Sell it
Sorry but I just like it that much
Any questions about this project I would be glad to answer, if you can drill file and cut you can make this project
Thank you all for your help

If anybody who live in BRISBANE Australia that could help me finish my project please contact me I would rather do that then sell my UX380N
