Crafty Hack Turns a Mouse, Salad Tongs, and a Bar Stool Into a Video Game Steering Wheel
If you don't feel like spending $150+ on a steering wheel controller after already dropping $80 on a video game, you can always improvise like YouTuber
did. Using a pair of salad tongs, a computer mouse, and a spinning bar stool, they
hacked together a pretty serviceable steering wheel accessory
for the game,
Euro Truck Simulator 2
The setup isn't quite a simple plug-and-play affair. You'll need to tweak the mouse's sensitivity in order to make the movements of the spinning bar stool translate properly to the in-game steering wheel. But once it's working properly, the clever hack genuinely looks like it makes a game about driving a delivery truck seem like a lot of fun.
