Wood Joystik
Here’s a great homemade Commodore 64 joystick made from wood! Matthias writes – “My motivation for this little hack, like many other hacks, was not so much the novelty of building one, but avoiding the expense of buying one. Having a Commodore 64, and not wanting to spend money buying a joystick, I started experimenting with building my own. The joystick pictured here is actually the third one, and the best one I built. To my surprise, it was actually a much better joystick than the ones you could buy, and given a choice, most people preferred to play with this one than with the expensive Wico joysticks. “ [via] – Link.
