What to do with (relatively) old controller

  1. Jun 26, 2016 #1

    I am taking apart a relatively old AfterGlow PlayStation controller and all I have left is the main board, the anolog sticks, two pressure plates, and two of the back buttons (which are all still connected to the main board). What should I do with it?

    It was never designed to have a future so you should bite the bullet. Bin it and buy a new system - that's the way of the world, I'm afraid. I never got into computer games but I am stuck with changing computers and phones far more often than is healthy for me.

    Consider the components as 21st century art supplies. Similar to the steam punk theme that uses old gears, pipe fittings, electrical equipment, etc.
