The translation of human will into machine movement
via a single stick may be one of the most overlooked
achievements of the last 100 years. "I would say
that it was the 20th century's distinctive contribution
to the interface between people and machines,"
said Mr. Tenner, who is author of Our Own Devices: How
Technology Remakes Humanity. The joystick is one of
the most popular input device used by gamers and simulators.
It aids to create a more realistic experience for flight
simulators and navigation within programs.
Originating from the Atari game system, digital joystick
consisted of 5 different functions: Up, Right, Left,
Down, and a fire button. The joystick's connector had
a 9 pin D Shell connector which helped the joystick
input and output the information from the direction
the stick is moved.
At first, the digital joystick was most popular for
use at home and soon became the standard joystick from
manufacturers. However, since parts and pieces for the
joystick were standard and made cheaply, they often
broke because switches and the mechanics in the joystick
were not durable, especially in arcade gaming. Eventually
more buttons were added by using the extra pins that
were not being used already by the joystick. The digital
joysticks were detected by connecting it to one digital
input port, which is then connected to the processor's
memory or I/O space. [Source:
