It's not CNC-related but may interest some as it is DIY-related. Here's a project I've been working on, I used a hacked wireless 360 controller and made an arcade stick, Most arcade sticks on the market (mass manufactured and home made) all look similar, more often looking like a box with buttons. I decided to make it more elegant that someone with a nice interior living room, a stick that would compliment their furnishings rather than having it look like a video game controller.
I won't get too much into details about the technicals: it's wireless, rechargeable (USB port for recharging), authentic Japanese arcade hardware (Sanwa), with a bentwood walnut top. This one is prototype #3 and most likely a final model #4 to follow after personal feedback/testing.
It is a 100% working functional model, not just a mockup prototype.
