Illuminated Joysticks from Gremlin Solutions


#1

Check these illuminated joysticks out! They are not Sanwa or Seimitsu but do look very similar to some of the Seimitsu sticks. I would be interested to try these out.

The transparent shaft covers are a nice touch aswell.

I have one coming in but its a 12v… still playing around with it to see what we can do…


#3

Lol, wtf! I just noticed the 12v supply needed to light it up. SMH

Surely as its just LED’s installed into the pcb wouldn’t it just mean using a lower ohm resistor?


#4

BlindWithOneArm is getting a yellow one come.


#5

They’re Rollies by the look of it


#6

The brand is San Star (model JS4) and these joysticks cost as little as $10 if ordered from China.

They do not feel good, so don’t go throwing away your LS-55 or JLF just yet.


#7

I’m thinking thats what I would have to do but I’m sceptical if it will agree with the rest of the components I place into the case…


#8

Your right, they look identical to the ones sold by Rollie.


#9

I recognize the 12v input, Ponyboy and I actually talked about that a while ago but if these are them (and not the ones Gahrling pointed out) then he didn’t take my advice.


#10

Well, they come from the same spot the buttons and sticks we normally call Rollies come from. And those no-bubble clear balls.

If they’re 12v, chances are they’re using a lamp bulb. I can’t think of any reason that they couldnt be refitted with LEDs.


#11

Im bout to order one in every color…they are sick!!!


#12

Went from drab, at 12V.

To fab, at 5V.

Check out J&J Blog to see what I did.

#15

Looks like jdm has a miniature warp drive reactor set underneath the mounting plate!

It does look like something out of Star Trek…


#16
