Picture of Game Controller Made 99.9% From Trash

I always wanted to own a personal arcade gaming style game controller, so when I noticed that my ex-employer was throwing away some old broken keyboards, I decided to take them home. These keyboards were the perfect ingredients for this project.

The other materials that I used to complete this project included: leftover plywood pieces, a leftover tile piece, small screws from broken toys and electronics, 2 broken flat 3 pin plugs, white and black plastic containers, tyre inner tube, 2 bicycle wheel spokes, Christmas balls or ball shape plastic container lids (like the green shampoo bottle in the above picture) and a small piece of iron sheet.

Step 1: Making the Joysticks - Step 1

For the joysticks, I used 4 rectangular pieces of iron sheet which I cut, drilled and folded as in the pictures above and attached a bolt (two 4" long bolts and two 1.5" long bolts) to each of them.

That exactly what we want to see in this contest, you got my vote!
Thank you for the encouraging comment :)
