One of the most impressive custom joysticks out there comes from Sam Kurd of B15SDM Designs.
Sam Kurd has designed a nifty-looking joystick that's definitely out of this world. The designer draws inspiration from steam punk and it certainly shows. The entire body has a transparent frame which is filled with gears that plays along with the alternative sci-fi theme. The actual joystick itself has a beautiful transparent knob, which, if you peer inside of it, consists of a small mechanical clock with a classic vintage look. Additional features that Kurd has added include a blue-green LED light at the bottom of the stick and a white light that illuminates when pressed.
It doesn't even matter if you're a fan of steam punk, because the whole design of the joypad itself is incredibly impressive.
