Redditor Gioppi wanted an arcade fight stick, so he built one out of an old keyboard, some cardboard and a broken pencil. It’s not very good.
Here is Gioppi’s Dell keyboard from 2003, from his project gallery.
Here is Gioppi’s keyboard upside-down with many of the keys taken off. He remapped the number keys and arcade stick button keys via his laptop.
Here are Gioppi’s Sanwa-quality arcade controls.
Here is Gioppi’s joystick, affixed via hot glue.
Gioppi’s arcade stick is a horrible work of art. If Leonardo DaVinci had made an arcade stick, it would look just like this, only with an IBM keyboard and a bit less hot glue.
How does Gioppi like his creation?
“Feels like crap, I’m ordering an actual one right now...”
