Metal Slug Themed Arcade Controller - In progress picture 11

The guts of the controller are on display here. The green circuit board (top right where all the connectors are plugged into) is a Mini IPAC. This converts all the button presses and joystick movements (which are essentially button presses as well) to the equivalent keyboard signals which are sent via USB. The great thing about this is that no extra drivers are required, so it works just as well on Linux, Mac and Windows. Another advantage of using a board such as the IPAC is that you can press several buttons at once without getting the limitations that you would normally with a keyboard alone.
