N64 Wireless Controller Answered

Has anyone been able to make a wireless n64 controller? I've been searching on the internet and the closest i think anyone has come is this. unfortunately, the wireless controller wasn't finished and if it was, it wasn't posted. anyway, if anyone has any information on how this can be done or, dare i say it, post an instructable i would be extremely grateful.

So I know this is an old thread but since emulators can be placed on your phones and laptops I found this... it is $50 but it is bluetooth wireless so if you run anything on your phone it would be good, it comes out nov 2.

They specialize in retro wireless controllers so I would think they are reliable

thanks but i'm not interested in using infrared. the old doc controllers are notorious for their poor signal quality.

Are you sure...? You could be mistaken that it is actually not illegally fair if it isn't validly true that you could by chance have the game in your possession, making you commit a possible illegal action if not not under the circumstances that your name isn't unfortunately dombeef...

Dammit, I'm just confusing myself now...
