How To Make Your Own Crappy Arcade Stick Out Of Old Junk

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.

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..."

Good man.

    Why order one when you can build one!
    The creative instinct is obviously there & it's a great project to consume a few weeks (months).
    Keyboards have masking issues anyway, hold down three keys and a fourth won't register.
    Makes it difficult to fight the streets. Look up slugcoin & Ipac.
