Open Controllers suggests combining common industrial objects with several sensors that smartphones are equipped with, such as the gyroscope or the camera, in order to create controllers that are easy to reproduce: a sphere and a cube that transmit 3D movements, as well as a cone that can locate a source of light. These controllers work with a game specially developed for them.

The project asks questions about everyday technologies, offering simple solutions to fully understand them and discover their potential. It is intended for a public of designers and developers, but also for amateurs in programming. It is a hybrid project, neither work nor product, that can be defined by those who wish to approach it.
