DIY Arcade Stick
To recall faithfuly the feeling of playing vintage 1980s arcade games, one can use Mame on his favourite PC.
But nothing can replace old fashion brute-force-friendly arcade sticks and buttons when it comes to playing those games.
Fortunately it's easy nowadays to reproduce the feel of those controllers, by simply hooking them onto your favorite emulator.
Here's mine, and the how-to build it:
Pick some wood and glue
Drill some holes
Pick some arcade buttons
Pick and trash an existing USB paddle
Remove the paddle buttons and plug the arcade buttons instead
Glue the wood
Throw some black paint at it
Assemble the whole
Put some shiny Leds on the front
Glue some old fashion pixel Spaceys
And Play !!
