This circuit makes it possible to use a Virtual Boy controller on a computer with an USB port. The circuit is
small and can be used in many ways. For instance:
- You can install it on the back of the controller, where the battery box normally goes.
- If you have a battery box, you can probably fit the board inside.
- You can cut the controller cable, wire it to the board, and then put the board in a small project box.
- If you happen to have a suitable controller port from a broken Virtual Boy, you can build a standalone adapter.
- If you cut some plastic, the board can probably be installed inside the controller!
Wiring notes: Some Virtual Boy controllers have a blue wire instead of green. The red wire is not used. If you notice any other differences, please contact us before continuing.
