Did you ever think that the Atari joystick can be a wireless one ?

This video is demo of a project that transforms and original Atari joystick to wireless Joystick

The joystick signals are captured using an Adafruit 433 Arduino , with a lipo battery and On/Off switch.

The Arduino transmit radio signal for each position of the joystick and for the button as well
Another 433 Arduino "listens" to the radio signals , and transfer it a another Arduino micro that simulates signals of a joystick, connected to a raspberry Pi with an Atari emulator

This cool and functionality gives us a smooth and fun and modern experience using an original joystick
