[* black] And now for the bonus level: controller teardown.
[* black] The screws on this controller are readily visible, no rubber plugs here! Inside we find: a bare board with a single connector
[* black] The cable is nicely threaded inside to allow some slack, to relieve stress on the connector.
[* black] The front side of the board is almost as bare. A single chip, some passive components, and some contact patches for the buttons
[* blackicon_note] These buttons act just like many remote controls, when pressed, the button bridges the gap between the conductive paint, completing a circuit—making Mario do something cool!
