Toy USB Guitar

James Carey converted a toy guitar to a USB Guitar Hero style controller suitable for use with Frets on Fire. Check it out along with a video here.

He took an Early Learning Centre toy guitar (you know, the ones that play annoying bleepy sounds) and ripped its guts out. He then stuck some guts from an old Logic 3 joystick into the body, did some wire magic and  hey presto, insta-USB Guitar!

Apparently the next issue of PCFormat will have instructions on how to do it. Seems like it'd be pretty easy to do. Just cram the guts of a USB controller in the toy guitar body. [via]
