Nokia N900 Gamepad

The N900 is a great device, capable of running many game system emulators.
Unfortunately, playing on its keyboard is not very comfortable.
I've decided to do something about it...

I've built a gamepad that connects to the usb port and fits nicely over the keyboard.
It features 8 buttons and a PSP joystick, the device emulates a USB keyboard so it works out of the box with all games/programs.

At the heart of the gamepad is an ATmega8A running V-USB software USB stack.
