This is a handmade prototype made from a laser cut acrylic casing with Sanwa buttons. Programmed using an Arduino Leonardo in the Arduino software. It works in Dolphin Emulator to play any GameCube game but the design was tailored towards being used as a competitive alternative to the GameCube controller for Smash Bros. Melee.
