    I did not want to make the title too long, so I will explain what I want.

    I am going to build a portable raspberry pi and I want a gamepad built into the sides. However, my soldering skills are beyond horrendous and I do not want to go into that. Is there a way I can implement a USB gamepad on the sides with my iBuffalo SNES controller? Can I somehow take it apart and use it still?

    My knowledge on this circuitry stuff is pretty limited so please excuse me.
