SNES gamepad clone MOD: Make the controller Keypad Arcade! #3DThursday #3DPrinting
Get a mini arcade experience on your retropi. The classic SNES controller is great but sometimes you need a joystick. Shared by fdzani on Thingiverse:
Being confined forced me to tidy up the attic when I had already tidied everything else and there I found an old RPI 1B and a car DVD player with composite video input, a few lego pieces to put it all together and a cloned SNES controller of the kind that are being used so much with Retropie for its price.
After a few days using the device I was not very happy with the control, so I decided to make this keypad replacement that will allow me to get a little closer to the arcade experience, I will test it thoroughly and if I think it is necessary I will update it with new variants.
Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
