Uni-Joy (ANF)


Announcement: UniTHOR - A new joystick for Amigas and modern devices
Uni-Joy LLC, based in Skarżysko-Kamienna, Poland, has announced a new joystick at the title link, weighing half a kilogram and promised to consist of durable microswitches. So far just existing as a 3D-printed prototype, there will be two variants of UniTHOR - either with a classic DB9 connector or for USB. Furthermore, customers will have the choice between the standard version ("Basic") and an assembly set ("Assembler"), with the latter allowing some customisation.

For the production run, a Kickstarter campaign for crowdfunding is planned. Below you can read the official press release:

UniTHOR - a new joystick for classic Amigas is coming

We've developed UniTHOR - a new joystick for classic Amigas and other computers of the era - with a solidly performing and tested prototype, we're ready to present it to the world.

In a nutshell:
  • It's not available for sale yet - we have 20+ 3D-printed prototypes
  • It will come in two versions - with DB9 and USB connector
  • Nicely clicking, durable microswitches
  • There will be two variants - Basic (coming first) and Assembler (custom model)
  • We'll be launching a Kickstarter campaign - aiming late February 2022
  • Price hasn't been set yet. If we were to sell today, it would probably be ca. 60 EUR per piece, but you know how things are these days (inflation, supply chain bottlenecks...)
More info can be found on our website (it may have a few navigation glitches that we'll iron out asap - we're more into joysticks than websites ;).
Meanwhile, you're welcome to have a look at the first promo vid, recently posted on YT. Quite a few familiar themes to be spotted. :) (snx)
