USB adapter for Atari joysticks

Posted on: June 28, 2005

Following yesterday’s weak post on reuse for old atari hardware , I found this effort via Make:Blog.

Overall a much more usefull idea to convert your old atari controller to USB to provide game support in newer machines and notebooks that ommit the old school style game port.

This hack involves ripping apart an elcheapo USB gamepad for the controller chip. nice. Although I would have been more impressed if it was all concealed inside the Atari Joy.
