Okay, so this isn’t my joystick. Sadly, I don’t feel confident enough to show mine to the internet.
Jason Torchinsky is definitely confident enough to show his — it’s huge! BoingBoing links us to a video of Jason’s 15-times scale Atari 2600 joystick, which is now on display at Felt Club XL. And, as you’d expect from something so geeky, the unwieldy controller actually works with the Atari 2600 console. According to his Web page, Jason’s joystick has been around the block. It was modelled at an i am 8-bit art event, and has even been manhandled by Atari founder Nolan Bushnell.
I don’t think this is the first huge joystick out there, but we like this Jason guy. He seems to be all about the robots (scroll down).
