    I have an old Sega mega-drive and I want to make it so the controls are wireless.

    True is I have no idea were to even start to send the signal from the 9 different wires that make up the output wire of the controller and send it wirelessly to a receiver what can do the opposite again and input it into the console.

    Can anyone help me in the right direction?

    all depends on the controls you/it are using..
    If its analog then you would probably convert that to a digital signal then the receiver would then have to turn that back into analog..
    You will more than likely require some microcontrollers/circuit boards/components and have to write code.. Are you up to that?

    Are you aware that wireless controllers already exist and are cheap for that device?
    You will spend quite a bit of time/money on this if you want to do it yourself.. far more than it would cost to just buy off the shelf..

    Maybe you could start with using something like the XBee modules.
