You can turn any old school game pad into a wireless bluetooth controller with the EZ-Key Bluefruit. Our SNES controller has 12 buttons, which is perfect for the EZ-Key. A slide switch at the bottom easily let’s you power it on. The top includes a USB charger so you can recharge the lithium battery.

The great thing about using bluetooth to connect, is you can use it with any computer or tablet, no need for a gamepad adapter!

This guide will teach you how to disassemble the SNES controller and mod into a wireless bluetooth gamepad. No complex code or re-flashing, you don’t even need a micro-controller. The EZ-Key handles all of the mapping and converters everything for you! This is a great project to help you get more soldering experience and how to fit circuits into small places. Perfect for a weekend project and well worth your time!
