I guess you either make it as a small box which contains an Arduino board, the RF transceiver, a battery and a 9p Sub-D connector which will connect to any Atari style joystick and make it wireless. Well, it won't be wireless per se, but it will only connect to the external box and not be
wired directly to the computer..

Or one coult put the entire deal inside one joystick if it can fit so the cable can be removed completely. The battery will be the problematic part here as it should not be too difficult to replace when it runs out. Alternatively, one could use 4x1.2V batteries and a charging circuit but that would take up a lot of space..

A system like this should have some programmable ID on it so multiple joysticks can be used together without interfering.
