I used to have a colecovision when i was younger (my first console) and i recently decided to buy one off ebay to take a trip down memory lane. Well, to say i was extremely disspointed in the orginal controllers was an understatement. They are pretty old, and just uncomfortable to use.
I decicded to undertake a bit of a project and build an arcade style controller from scratch. Heres the end result:
Theres just no way i can go back to the old one now. This controller is so much fun to use and considering that a large majority of colecovision games were arcade ports, the arcade controller really fits the bill.
There's a HUGE amount of assembly involved as I've made the PCB from scratch, however that said, I'm considering MAYBE making a few of these to sell, but just don't know the demand for it. If your interested in something like this, drop me a line: Paul at chromesphere dot com.
