I finally took a few minutes this morning to watch this video all the way through. I love it even more. I definitely want to build one of these, but I don't currently have the hardware setup to program the ATTiny microcontroller. Other than that, building one of these using your PCB design seems like it would be really straightforward. I especially like the fact that you desinged the board to be built ambidextrously. For instance, I prefer the thumbstick on the left, fire buttons on the right, so if I ever built one, that's how I'd do it (ANYONE DESIGNING 3D-PRINTED CASES, PLEASE TAKE NOTE TO MAKE MIRROR TOP HALVES AVAILABLE!)
That said, if you or someone else in the community (*) does a run of these boards and programmed chips, I'll buy two in a heartbeat. This is a great solution to a decades-long issue. Thank you for sharing your work with the community.
(*) I'd get it touch with Marlin Bates (user 'Macrorie' here on AA). He's put together bill of material kits for the 1088XEL A8 computer project, builds and sells Robin Edwaards' UNO and Ultimate Carts for the A8, and Robin's new UNO 2600 cart. He's setup with a pretty good system to handle his parts kit inventories, ordering and payment, etc.
