Wii RetroPad Adapter is a Wiimote adapter based on a small PCB, an ATMega uC
and a couple of connectors that allow you to use the following classic
joysticks as if they were a Wii Classic Controller:

:. Sega Genesis pad(also supports: Sega Master System, Atari 2600 and others)

:. Nintendo NES pad

:. Super NES pad or Playstation 2 Dualshock, depending on the extension cable
used and uC firmware.

The Wii RetroPad adapter talks to the Wiimote that, ultimately, talks to the
Wii wirelessly, so you get a real Classic Controller experience with no Game
Cube extension cables involved! :)

This adapter is compatible with both Nintendo official games ans also homebrews
(AKA, those great emulators out there!).

If you are going to use a PS2 joystick with it, it even supports the analog
sticks!

Wii RetroPad Adapter is Opensource / Openhardware, so you can contruct your
PCB, compile the source code, burn the firmware in the micro-controller and
start using it.
