using a xbox controler to controle a power point slide.

I use powerpoints with games in them for work. I want them to be more interactive for the people playing said games.
I want to use an xbox controler in order to click the right button. My idea is to use powerpoint macros and the xbox controller to interact with the slide. I eventually want to attach bigger buttons to the xbox controler, to turn it into something like a game show. 

Is the idea feasable?


At the moment I have a jank solution. Using a bluetooth numpad, and overiding the buttons and make the computer think those numpad inputs are mouse clicks.

the way it is setup sometimes the inputs get messed up.

I have xpadder. 

 

It costs$10 if you get it legitimately through the guy. 

 

It's awesome and works great.
