Nintendo controller into a card reader
Put a card reader inside a Nintendo Controller
Tools and materials
You’ll need some stuff for this project.
A Nintendo Controller
A card reader of your choice
A rotary tool
A hobby knife set
Make some space
Glue the buttons in place and use the rotary tool to open up the
case to make room for the card reader. Remember that you might
want to get back in so try and leave the four corner screws
something to bite into. Also think about the cord for the reader
and how it will fit in the space available. Glue the buttons in
place and then gut the area necessary for the cardreader.
Make the necessary slots
Mark the areas for the cards you want to be able to read. If you
have a 12 in 1 card reader but only use one or two types of cards
why bother with all the extra openings Use the rotary took to cut
the initial hole and then the razor to trim it up nicely.
Figure out the cord route
If you can, trim away the cord and route it through the opening in
the back of the controller. Then use hot glue to anchor everything
in place. Remember to make sure you don’t block access to any of
the slots you will be using for the cards.
