If anyone starts making and selling a stand alone spinner controller I'd be interested in hearing about it.  My Tempest cart awaits a good controller so I can get a halfway decent score.

I have been consulting Edladdin Controllers, he is working on a standalone controller for the 5200 to include a spinner :)   I had a standalone controller breadboarded (just duplicated the trakball circuit for just the X axis), but got to lazy to make a PCB and just modded my 5200 trakball instead :P

I don't much care for the game, but quite enjoyed the video as always.
