This new joystick design came to be in a Vision,,, I credit it to God, because it was soooo complex, and yet came to me so easily. Sorry also, that I did not get the time to pretty this description up more.
The “Joe-stick” is an extremely complex control mechanism, which looks like a joystick in the middle of a donut that consists of multiple types of arm, hand and finger motion detection devices. In this next generation joystick, there are seven to eleven different individual activating movements, with each one being able to be done separately, or in combination with one or several others. This is three and a half times that of a regular joystick, which by comparison, only has two activating motions, (side-to-side, as well as, forward and back). Each motion has its own sensing mechanism, ranging from potentiometers, which can be set to measure the distance it travels, and speed at which it does so, and pressure-sensing devices, to measure the strength with which it is done. There are also new ranges of buttons, or switches, that you can activate as well, with your thumb and all four fingers. I tried to capture every possible movement your hand and fingers could do. Every activating motion will be distinct, fluent, combinable, and yet still separate.
At the center of this futuristic contraption, is the standard molded handgrip. But that is where it veers off the standard joystick beaten path. In the vast button selection arsenal, which comes with this handle unit, there are four different buttons for the thumb to activate (right, left, top, + bottom), [not new]. There are also three individual position buttons or switches, (lower/center/upper) for each finger to depress, [new]. It gets even better; there would also be sensors on two plates, running down the outside of both the finger tips, and the bone just past the knuckles, this would also be done with thumb. The purpose of these sensors is to detect the opening of the fingers, (one more switch), [all new]. There is also grip sensors, between the upper thumb joint and the palm, to not only sense when the person squeezes the grip and opens their hand, but also measures how much pressure is exerted, (potentiometer against springs)[also new].
This handle unit, or grip, is on the central bar unit, in the middle of a donut shaped mechanism. This grip is held in the central position on the central bar, (up + down), by two springs (upper + lower). This handle sides up + down on bar 2 inches either way, for a total of 4 inches motion, and is monitored both for distant it travels up and down on the center bar, (through potentiometer), and is also speed sensitive (through pressure sensing, or dist/time), so it knows the rapidity at which it is moved, up or down. The grip also has side-to-side, and front-to-back motion sensors, with a ¼ inch movement of the central bar each way. This also has four springs to keep it in the center position. These are both speed, (distant/time monitored) and pressure sensitive, (strength against potentiometer in the springs).
The handle unit also twists or rotates 45 degrees in both directions, for a total of 90 degrees. This is on the same bar that it slides up and down on, to capture the movement like twisting off a bottle cap. This has both speed sensors (through rotation/time), and rotation sensors (potentiometers), to measure the amount of angle twisted. It can use one potentiometer for twisting clockwise, and another value for twisting counter clockwise, on two separate potentiometers, or it could be a single potentiometer with the center value known. It could also be speed sensitive (rotation/time), to measure how urgent the motion is, or quickly it is twisted. The grip is held in the position, of pointing directly forward, by two minute rotational springs, attached to bar by small springs and wrapped around the diameter of the central bar, going from in a screw in the central bar to a fixed screw in the central bar mechanism.
The handle unit bar also pivots forward and backward, this motion is like when you point your finger up and down. These motions are done in graduated motion, and are also speed sensitive.

The donut shaped mechanism consists of a set of circular tube rings. Within these donut shaped control units, on a central bar, are handle units, where the handle slides up and down on these bars, which does the rotating. These handle units are able to slide up and down on the bars. The movement is graduated and speed sensitive, so that it measures the distance it moves, and the speed it is moved. The bars also move side to side a small amount, and are pressure sensitive, so that the greater the pressure the faster the movement of
There is also a slight side-to-side motion, where the bar that the handle slides up and down on, can move sideways a fraction. This motion is binary and maybe pressure sensitive, and just measures whether the motion is to the right, or to the left.
And the last action that this mechanism measures is the griping of the handle, and also the opening of your hand. This measures both binary in and out motion of your fingers, and the pressure you exert, either way. This could be done individually, for each finger.
The handle unit twists or rotates on the same bar that it slides up and down on, like twisting off a bottle cap. This is a binary motion, one value for twisting clockwise, and another for counter clockwise. It could be a graduated motion, and speed sensitive. The handle unit bar also pivots forward and backward, this motion is like when you point your finger up and down. These motions are done in graduated motion, and are also speed sensitive.
This will revolutionize and revive new meaning for joystick
Joe-Stick can be used for games + robotics + controls for machining tools. Typing with larger keyboard select.
Such as many symbols + foreign language letters. Can even be used as musical
instrument or flying or driving machinery, while in it or remote control
A 2 foot wide + 3 foot long platform that straps to your lap, with 2 donut shaped units that slide 18 inches back and forth, for a total of 3 feet
Inside the 2 donut shaped units there are joystick handles on a bar with fire 2 buttons for the thumb + 3 fire buttons for the index fingers
The handle sides up + down on bar 3 inches either way, for a total of 6 inches
The handle + bar rotate clockwise + counter for a total of 270 degrees
The bar with handle on it pivots on rockers inside the twin circular rails for rotation, so it senses pointing up + down
The wrist bar can be twisted, as in twisting on or off bottle cap, for a total of 90 degrees
The handle can be pressure sensitive when squeezed or other outside lever to measure when hand or fingers are open
Sensors could be used for all individual fingers + be used as switches, maybe even variable pressure sensitive
Side to side motion for thumbs, as well as squeeze and separate 2 or 3 buttons within each fingers reach
Can have each control unit modified for its specific use, and make company to modify each and every use
Make Joystick Company to make different sticks for every possible use
Make separate stick for each individual use, or company utility
Keyboard letters can be displayed on side of screen to point to, to activate
Touch spots on handle beside each finger, or 3 or 4 letters for each finger. To open the finger selects which letter to be selected. To close each finger chooses to print the letter
Within this joystick handle in a donut shaped control unit, there is a bar inside the donut, which does the rotating and pivoting. This handle unit pivots forward and back 45 degrees forward and back, totaling 90 degrees, as well as rotates 90 degrees either way, total of 180 degrees in the donut unit. The battery at the bottom of the unit, works as a stabilizer and self-leveling unit. The movements are all in digital and graduated, some being speed sensitive, so that it measures the distance it moves, and the speed it is moved. The throttle is done by squeezing the handle, it is pressure sensitive, so that the greater the pressure the faster the engine goes.
The last action that this mechanism measures is the griping of the handle, and also the opening of your hand. This measures both binary in and out motion of your fingers, and the pressure you exert, either way. This could be done individually for each finger.
It is a platform that straps to your lap while in a sitting position
2 joystick mechanisms mount on the platform , 1 for each hand
