NEW GUIDE: John Park’s AtariFruit 2600 Joystick @adafruit @johnedgarpark #adafruit #atari

Have a look at this new guide, the AtariFruit 2600 Joystick, and turn a classic Atari CX-40 joystick into a wireless controller with the Feather nRF52 Bluetooth BLE!

From the guide:

Playing emulated games on an iPad or iPhone is a lot of fun, but one thing missing from the equation is a proper joystick. To fix this dire situation, you can take an original Atari 2600 joystick and turn it into a wireless controller capable of working with any iCade standard game!

The Feather nRF52 Bluefruit Bluetooth LE microcontroller is perfect for the task. It’s fast, has robust Bluetooth, and is tiny enough to fit inside the joystick’s case, along with a LiPo battery for power.

You won’t even need to modify the case, just remove the original cable and you’re ready to create a whole new, modern controller inside of the body of a classic!



Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
