    Hey guys :) I recently finished up this tiny Gamecube controller. It was built into a keychain, and is fully functional as a gamecube controller.

    That’s so freaking hot. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking a “it would be so cool if...” moment and making it a reality. It is indeed so cool.

    Somebody didn't watch the video :P I got it at Gamestop. They're in little blind grab bags (backpack buddies) that you have to feel to find the right one. If your closest gamestop doesn't have them, you can have them print you out a receipt with the locations near you that do stock them.

    In the video it appears you are using the wii-u usb adapter on your Wii portable?
    I think this would be the perfect size for my daughters, and I'm in the planning stages for a Wii portable that I plan to make "Dockable" like our SWITCH.
    So using the usb port would make connections so much simpler (thinking USB-C for communication, power and HDMI [probably self-made but as close to industry specs as possible])

    I'm not really sure I follow, but the wii u adapter just plugs in and works inside nintendont, no rewiring required :)
