I was wondering what the first video game controller was like and how it played compared to modern day controllers. Some research led me to the 1972 Magnavox Odyssey controller, but used systems sell for hundreds of dollars on Ebay.
I decided to design my own low-cost approximation of the controller and used an Arduino Pong DIY to make it functional.
Here is a video that shows how I designed this and got it running:https://youtu.be/bUvZBO1EuII

It does require some additional items beyond 3D printed parts to function (potentiometer, Arduino Uno, etc.).
