Making a gameboy style gamepad for phone

Post by kowa » Wed Feb 13, 2019 4:03 pm

Hi! I started a small project of making a gamepad that transforms my phone into a gameboy, I took an 8bitdo zero and 3d printed case that I made myself, do you have any advice when designing and making the beta version of it. Thanks!

interesting project, I was thinking of designing something like this myself... If interested, we could collaborate... I dont have much time, but I am sure I could find some spare time every week :)
My approach would be to design my own PCB and work with someone to put it to pretty designed enclosure.

interesting to see how yours turns out....

this idea has been played out before (Game Pad add-ons for Phones)....


here are a couple of example...

you may be able to take some design cues from the others....
good luck....
