Maker Patrick Doherty offers step-by-step instructions on how to modify the classic Atari punk console with a joystick. Here’s how Patrick describes it:

The Atari Punk console is a classic 8-bit noise maker. It is easy to build and requires very few components- ones that are readily available at your local electronic supplier, such as Radio Shack. The problem with the Atari Punk Console is the interface; knobs can be fun but only keep me entertained for so long. A joystick on the other hand is a much more fun and active way to use interface

Here’s the build.

Bio: I have always loved to make things, wood, steel, electronics. It doesn't matter as long as I am not bored I'm happy. It only makes sense, I come from a family of makers. My mother is an artist who will never stop taking classes to broaden her horizons (I recently built her an exhaust system so she could use encaustic paints) and my sister is a prolific soft sculpturist, she even has a book and has written an article for Make's sister magazine Craft.I live in Chicago, I am twenty years old and I am getting ready to apply to schools for electrical engineering, possible with a double major in mechanical.
