We’re huge fans of retro consoles at Tindie, and anything which allows us to use them with modern hardware is always welcome! Whether you’re using a NES, SNES or Genesis (Megadrive in Europe) control pad, the Triple Controller USB Adapter will allow you to plug-and-play with your favourite gaming system, such as Raspberry Pi, PC, or Mac!
It’s powered by an Arduino Pro Micro and comes fully assembled, assembled without the Arduino and as a DIY kit to make yourself. It’ll work with a host of systems and its software is based on MickGyver’s Retro Controller project; an open source coding collection to interface controllers over USB – subsequently, the Triple Controller USB files are available to use and inspect over on the sellers GitHub page. It’s a neat way to play homebrew or emulated games on your Raspberry Pi, Retro Pi, MiSTer, PC, or Mac based systems and offers an experience one step closer to playing on the original hardware.
It’s the first product on sale by TimVille, who ships within 1-2 business days from Pittsburgh in the USA. Get ready to challenge your friends to some Bubble Bobble, F-Zero or Golden Axe with the original controller in your hand!
