Was just browsing another forum and ran across this.

Apparently they’re made by Sanwa and a release date is still undecided. Just curious what everyone here thought of them.

Super Edit - thread title should be LED Sticks and Buttons. Oh well, you get the idea.

Hi man,
I got this pic also (scanned it from a japanese arcademagazine I got):

I have asked Sanwa many times about these things but it is still not for sale :/. Dunno if it ever will be…


#3

Yeah, I think it would be a hot seller. We’ve been told two different stories, one that it’s just being perfected before release and another that the hold up is the high cost/tech support involved.

I wish Seimitsu would hurry up and make something similar.


#4

I have asked seimitsu if they ever will come out with a new joystick (optical or whatever) but they just say no :/.


#5

A Seimitsu made Flash equivalent? That’d be such a great stick. A shame they’ll never make it.


#6

so everyone knows, you’d need to get an entirely new shaft and maybe a new stick to use one of those because of the additional circuitry. Pretty cool though.


#7

Yeah, everything would have to be entirely new. Looks like even the dustcovers are clear.


#8

those are hottt

These would FORCE me to get into the stick making business. They’re too sexy to leave alone for ANYTHING
