This hack combined three of my favorite subject retro gaming, electronics (lite) and micro computing. I have been looking for a project to get my feet wet on Raspberry Pi. Browsing thingiverse I found the perfect one, Tomvdb’s PI Zero Nes Controller.
I remade his design from scratch to give it a few of the upgrades that people recommended in the comments, plus a few of my own, including a thicker base and mount points to screw down the Pi Zero. These make for a little taller end result, but still very manageable as a controller.
