I’ve had a Steam Controller for about six months. As a gaming device it’s excellent, especially if you’re not already an expert with another gamepad. What hadn’t occurred to me until this week is that its unusual design makes it perfectly suited to serving as a jog/shuttle device for video editing.

What makes it potentially better than a standard shuttle device is that the Steam Controller also functions as a high accuracy mouse. It becomes a hybrid mouse/keyboard/shuttle device.

Anyway, check out the first prototype in action here:

More work to be done, but it’s already a fascinating device in this context.
