Teardown Lab - Space Invaders Joystick Raspberry Pi 3 Hack Candidate
I look inside a retro classic Space Invaders TV Game unit!

I have put together Teardown Lab because I cannot bear to throw away useless junk but I can give it one last hoorah in usefulness by sharing what is inside and possibly figuring out how it works!
Please feel free to ping me with suggestions or if you want to send me something to dismantle (or try to repair!) for the channel!

For a review of the working unit, click here:
