The four servomotors are controlled using the two joysticks on the controller. Each joystick controls two servo motors. The X and Y direction of each joystick each controls a servo motor. This totals four servomotors.

Servomotor speed is proportional to the tilt of the joystick.

To record servo motor movements user presses a button on PS2 to start recording. Recording sessions record the four servomotor channels simultaneously for up to five minutes. User uses PS2 to control the servo motors during recording session. To stop recording user presses another button on PS2 controller.

Once recorded user may playback the session with or without the playstation controller attached. Allows for continuous loop playback of all servomotor movements recorded.

No programming or host computer is required. The PS2 Interface is a stand alone device that uses the PS2 to record and playback both the servomotor movements and servomotor speed. PS2 controller is not required for playback.
