An interface I like: Sony PS3 controller
external image ps3-controller-picture.jpg
Description:
  • A wireless controller used to interface with the Sony Playstation 3 gaming console.

Reasons for Liking:
  • The shape of the controller is very comfortable to hold
  • The symmetric design is comfortable to use and all of the buttons are in easy reach
  • The layout of the buttons is generally the same as its predecessor allowing for prior learning to be transferred
  • It is wireless and can be recharged by connecting it to the console

An interface I dislike: Nintendo Wiimote

Description:
  • A wireless controller used to interface with the Nintendo Wii gaming console.

Reasons for Disliking:
  • The shape of the controller makes it easy to slip out of my hands
  • The controller includes a wrist strap that is uncomfortable for me for long duration
  • The layout of the buttons makes it difficult to reach the "1" and "2" buttons
  • The layout is completely different than its predecessors' thus requiring new learning
  • It is wireless but must be recharged using new batteries (or spending extra money for rechargeability)
