Raspberry Pi Emulator
I am making an arcade machine that runs a variety of emulated retro consoles. This arcade machine runs off of the microprocessor Raspberry Pi, and I am using the Retropie operating system to do this.

My second milestone was building the joystick for my arcade machine. The first step was to connect my xbox controller. I did this by every time I started up my pi, I ran
sudo bash -c ‘echo 1 > /sys/module/bluetooth/parameters/disable_ertm’
which disabled something blocking the pi from connecting to the controller. Then I went and made this line of code always run at the pi boot phase so I don’t have to do it every time. It is important to note that this is only needed for the xbox controller and not for Playstation
The second step of my second milestone was to CAD the whole arcade machine so I knew where I wanted my buttons.
