Vintage Joysticks, Repurposed
By James Grahame
Roger writes, "I follow your blog and always share your passion for old gaming devices, specially joysticks. As a designer, I use Joysticks as research material to create my art work. Please enjoy my collection of 100 joysticks."
His collection spans decades and includes beautiful devices like the xx, along with abominations such as the IBM PCjr stick. For reasons that I can't quite fathom, each has been hooked up to a digital timepiece.
The site explains everything in artful detail, "In 2002, Roger Ibars started to build 'Hard-wired devices,' a collection of vintage electronic devices -alarm clocks and game controllers- in which two cultures of interface blend: the computer gaming culture and the home appliance culture."
Personally, I'm holding out for a joystick-controlled microwave.
