Transforming Atari Controller
My idea is to make an Atari controller that doubles as an Atari Joystick and Atari Paddles (differences shown in photo). A joystick has 4 directions and a button. The paddles are meant to be rotated.
My plain is to have one base that holds the electronics (including the magnetic sensor, the microcontroller, and the cable to the Atari). Then depending on the controller configuration required for the game, the handle can be replaceable. For the joystick, a long handle will be used with an appropriate magnet attached at the base (based on the joystick application note). For the paddles, another type of magnet will be used to detect rotation.
I would also like to be able to detect depression on each type so an additional electro-mechanical button won't be required. I would also like the controller to automatically detect what type of handle is installed on the base (via the magnetic field), but that may require some type of external configuration switch.
