    Default JoyFi - a wireless adapter for joysticks (Amiga, C64, Atari)

    This is joyFi v1.0, a joystick-adapter that lets you play games using joysticks wireless-ly; hook the joysticks to the master-board, sit in a sofa 10 metres away from the slave-board that's connected to the computer, and play. No more hassle with cables. The unit has been tested successfully at 8 meters between the units, and in theory it should work up to 15 meters.

    Guaranteed tested and confirmed 100% working on any Amiga, Atari and Commodore 64. The adapter should, in theory, work on VIC20 as well, but this has not yet been tested. This version has no support for mice or paddles.

    The master board requires a 9V battery (not included).


    279 SEK for an assembled unit, or 199 SEK for a kit which you solder yourself (instructions provided).
    Worldwide shipping 38 SEK.


    EDIT: There are 15 units left in stock (2017-04-2

    Probably not. I have not had access to a CD32-controller during the development so that's unconfirmed.

    As I do this for a living, I can't release anything too early. My usual workflow is to sell off a whole first batch and then, if I decide to develop whatever-it-is further, I release the old schematics / sources etc.

    In this case around 60 units has to be sold until I release anything, so it depends on how many buyers I can attract. Probably won't happen in the "near" future, but one never knows.
