Touch screens are great and all, but who doesn't miss handling an actual joystick? Thanks to Scoot2084, you can go back to those days with his Androcade Android Arcade Controller.

The Androcade Android Arcade Controller is a joystick shaped in the mascot of the Android software. Yes I understand that everyone loves the touch screen, but this will bring you back to the days of button mashing that's been long forgotten. This nifty little item uses Arduino and the Bluetooth shield, which allows you to control wirelessly. I should also mention this is a DIY creation which means you won't find one in stores. But don't fret, because Scoot2084 has provided full instructions and the material you need to build your very own Androcade on his site. Stats for Bionic Mobile Joysticks Trending: Older & Chilly
