Andrzej “Emeryth” Surowiec writes: “I wanted to share my latest hack with you – a USB gamepad attachment for the Nokia N900. I’ve built a gamepad that connects to the USB port and fits nicely over the keyboard. It features 8 buttons and a PSP joystick, the device emulates a USB keyboard so it works out of the box with all games/programs. At the heart of the gamepad is an ATmega8A running V-USB software USB stack.”
