8Bitdo today unveiled the 8Bitdo DIY, a new mod-kit capable of turning original controllers into wireless Bluetooth gamepads. It’s compatible with NES, Super Nintendo, and SEGA Genesis controllers plus the Japanese Super Famicom or Mega Drive controllers and Classic Edition versions of Nintendo’s gamepads.

There isn’t any soldering involved here. When you make a purchase, you’ll get the instructions and hardware, which includes a Bluetooth radio and a rechargeable lithium-ion battery.

Once setup is complete, you’ll be able to use your new controllers with Switch, Windows, Mac, and Raspberry Pi. Also, thanks to the Bluetooth compatibility, Android, iOS, and other devices should be supported as well.

You can purchase the 8Bitdo DIY for $20. It’s up on the company’s website here.
