Wireless SNES Controller

I found this guide to make a wireless NES controller, but it has a few drawbacks. The range is only 3-4 feet and you can only push one button at a time. It got me thinking, and what I would like to do is make my SNES controller wireless, possibly with an IR transmitter and reciever. I would think that this will take some programing to encode and decode the signal. I want to learn as much as I can from this project, but I don't know where to start. Can anyone help?

I would just try getting a decent wireless keypad. Or if you were skilled enough, you could program a pic or the such and attach a bluetooth modual. But just guessing you don't have the skill for that nor do I.
