Tech Stuff: GamepadBlock

Recommended Posts

I've been looking at the Raspberry Pi as a potential option for emulating games (Retropie), and came across this interesting little piece of tech.

What does it do? In simplest terms, you could take your favourite controller - or at least your least favourite of your collection of favourite controllers - cut the cord and map the individual wires to this block. It would then be recognized as a USB controller on your PC/Mac/Linux machine (or a Rasperry Pi in my case).

It's certainly not practical for most, nor is it even probably a great idea for what we do. but the cost is the same as most USB adapters these days ($25US), and it might be cool to try.

Just thought I'd pass that along.
