Shredz64

Everybody loves Guitar Hero on the PlayStation 2. (Okay, maybe not everyone, but work with me here.) Of course, there's the fact that not every budding Hendrix owns a PS2, but this didn't stop Toni:

[M]y Shredz64 project [is] an attempt to built an interface to connect the Playstation Guitar Hero controller to the Commodore 64 computer, and then build a guitar-hero like game on the C64 utilizing this controller.

There's a way to go yet — for one thing, the whammy bar is disabled — but it's always fun to see someone finding yet another application for the little beige doorstop, which, I might add, was my first computer, back in the Pleistocene era.

(Seen at Engadget.)
