Are there any hacks out there for old video game controllers or old TV remotes?

I go to second hand stores a lot and I always see plenty of the old style video game controllers and TV remotes. I think, "What a waste, there must be some use for these controllers as a USB connected control or remote activation device.

Google the type of controller you want modded to usb and most likely you'll find an article or video on how to do it and a lot of those devices have usb converters you can buy

xbox controllers and dvd remotes can be easily modified to fit usb and have drivers for windows (its caled xbcd i think) and i think the NES controller can be modifed through some sort of programming kit to hook up to your computer...
