National Nintendo Week

Who amongst us has not had their love of buttons forged in the fires of Super Mario land? None, I surmise, none. There-fore its not surprising that most men in their 20’s still have a soft spot for all things Nintendo, especially the original NES paddle. With the exception of the Wii, frankly, its all been down hill from there

Check out the video below for a guide on how to re-use those original paddles for other interesting things like giant Nintendo controllers.

This DIY guide is mostly entertaining but may also be useful to djs as it briefly demonstrates the basic principles of using any joystick device as a brain for a DIY control surface.

On Wed in celebration of “National Nintendo Week”, we will unveil a project that turns your VCI-100 into a Nintendo paddle.
