atari jaguar controller made completly from scratch

Recommended Posts

this is a controller i made a few days ago. it was mostly made of electrical tape and cardboard for support.

 

-- things i used --

 

cardboard (cerial box) frame

 

toilet paper roll tubes (for the handles)

 

black electrical tape (for the color)

 

wire

 

led

 

buttons (from those Mc Donald happy meal toys)

 

a 15 pin port

 

the only thing i paid for was the wire, led and the 15 pin port ($15.00 total) and everything works perfectly. quick responce, smooth D-pad controll, easy placement for A B and C buttons. what u think? :D

Is this a mock-up for something else? Were you thinking of adding something ...like a Pro Control scheme? Maybe you had some more thoughts for feedback you were interested in, or specific questions? I thought you could get a regular controller for about $15. Maybe not with shipping costs these days...

LOL I had to check april 1st hadnt crept up on me on this one - presumably it has a crumple zone incase of sudden impacts? Is it likely to fold up on you at times of stress?

You wanna do the wiring on my Vari Geo Jagpad project when I finally get the shells made?

This is more ghetto then the P-P-P-Powerbook! Except this actually does something. Not to be a jerk or anything but... do you not feel like you wasted a bunch of time with that? Were you practicing for when you might make a real controller?
