PS3 controller mod help for PC?

i have one of my brother's old PS3 and one of the controllers that he left behind and my dad wants a controller for the emulator that he's playing on is there a way to mod/hardware hack the PS3,the controller and the laptop computer or our desktop computer to make it so that the PS3 controller works as a "joystick" controller for the computer? if so is there an instructable for it?if there isn't an instructable for it can someone make one for me?

extra info: my dad's playing the emulator project64 as the N64 which does support joysticks....i think
