Trammell Hudson made a replica of the Wipeout game from Hackers – check out more info here.
In the film “Hackers”, the club Cyberdelia had a standup Wipeout game with a dual stick controller. The actors aren’t actually playing the game — it was pre-rendered and they are just moving the sticks — but we want it for our Hackers 20th anniversary party at NYC Resistor.
I used a Teensy to convert this rare two-stick PS1 controller into a USB joystick. Code is in github/osresearch/wipeout. Unfortunately the game doesn’t accept analog inputs for the ship controls, which makes it rather hard to play.
