This teddy bear controller has 5 possible inputs, hands and feet are touch sensitive (capacitive) and the belly is filled with conductive wool, so that it can be pressed like a soft button.

The conductive wool is handmade, the hands are sewed with conductive thread and the feet made out of aluminium foil. The input gets processed by an arduino uno, which is stored in the rocket back pack of the teddy.

The controller is hooked up with unity over the serial port. 2 unity script handle the inputs and raise events as they occur, so they can be used for any games with some small adjustments.
