Games "A few weeks ago I got my Pi delivered and started working on what I would describe as 'universal console'. In this post I describe my initial thoughts about this project and present an adapter that allows you to use SNES controllers as input devices for the Raspberry Pi." This is what the Pi is all about. Amazing work by Florian (can't find his last name!), code and instructions are available. So cool.

If you don't want to bother with the elaborate adapter hardware in this article (and you don't have to), using the GPIO pins to run a SNES controller is absurdly simple. The entire contents of the hardware in a SNES controller is a single shift register; there's no need to involve USB if that's all you've got.
