So by now there are tones of adapters and USB type controllers that can replace the joystick controller, are there any controllers or adapters for the paddle controllers?  What is the best know Computer equivalent to the paddle controllers?  If there aren't is anyone aware of any projects that make use of GPIO on the raspberry pi to allow the paddle controller to work?  Mind you I am not looking to emulate any games I don't own and am not endorsing others doing so as well.  I mainly want to have a portable system I can load my games up and play hook up easily to a modern TV.

I've got two of these, and they work great with my emulation PC. Just wanted to second this suggestion!
