Tutorial- How to make a Bluetooth Arcade Stick by Quinn Dunki @ The Adafruit Learning System.

If you’re into playing classic video games, there’s just no substitute for an arcade joystick and buttons. The clicky feel, the ball top stick, it’s all part of the experience. Not only that, but these games were originally tuned for these types of controllers. So if you’re going for high scores, you may find you actually perform better with the right equipment in your hands.

Adafruit has some great products to make one of these for yourself. We can even leverage a little bit of the 21st century to make our 20th century experience wireless with the creation of Bluefruit EZ-Key.

Before we start with the rest of this project, check out the Bluefruit tutorial as you’ll need to refer to it for information on how to pair the module and remap the keys (this tutorial does not require remapping the keys but if you want to customize your joystick)
