HOW TO – Add LEDs to a NES controller

Silas shows you how to add LEDs that light up when the buttons are pressed on a NES controller, nice update to a retro pad – “So I’ve noticed that there’s “a lot” of people, talking about how they would add LED’s to their NES pads, that lights when a button is pressed. Sadly noone seems to do anything about it… So I desided to something about it…”Link.
