Dude Creates Wireless SEGA Genesis Controller


I have a soft spot in my heart for SEGA’s 16-bit Genesis console. I remember playing hours of Vectorman and Cosmic Spacehead, sitting in front of the television set until my eyes begged for a rest. To think now, that I could have been doing it all wirelessly, just like hacker Jakob Griffith. He rigged an old Mad Catz Genesis controller with a wireless transmitter and with a little luck, got it to work perfectly. Hey, better a hacker get his hands on a Genesis than a terrorist.

Want to make your own? Jakob has kindly provided excellent detailed instructions with pictures on his website. Check it out!

  1. There’s actually an official SEGA six button wireless Mega Drive/Genesis controller and it’s extremely responsive and reliable, i actually modded a Model-1 a couple of weeks ago and fitted the receiver internally as the receiver looks kinda odd on a Model-1.

    Great Hack though mate!
