My local library had a bunch of Cigar Boxes left over from a crafternoon. I had this idea for the next gamer night. Make some USB joysticks….

I used some clear joysticks with color changing LED’s

A VUSB Atmega proto board with an Atmega8 provided the USB interface.

Not bad but my son keeps taking it to use with his retropi. I have to install a Pi in the bottom of the box and make it a complete game system….
