Project Mame: Alpha phase version 2

Not much of an update – but a box of excitement arrived in the mail;

I am pretty surprised by the quality. Without opening any of the actual bubble wrapping the weight of the joystiqs is amazing. Smooth rotation as well! Its a simple 2 player kit – 2 joystiqs, 12 buttons, 2 ‘start’ buttons, 1 USB encoder and cables to match.

The next step in the plan is to assemble a test enclosure (using high-grade plastics!) and ensure Ubuntu can recognise our new babies. The testing will include vigorous games of ‘Toobin’ to ensure a full test cycle.

After that! We release our modelling and blueprints for the cabinet design!
