side project: xbox 360 wireless acrade stick

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.


  1. Your wireless arcade stick looks gorgeous! If it was on the market and was priced around a typical controller's price, I'd buy one in a heart-beat.

  2. If you want real world testing, my 7yr old grandson is up for it .. and I promise not to fight him over it :)
