I assume you talking about an Atari 8-bit here...

There was a book published afew years ago by "COMPUTE! Books",
The title of the book is "Electronic Computer Projects"

It show how to build differant projects and how to 'interface ' them to you
Atari 8-bit or Commadore 64.
It also shows what programing is needed and has lots of pics, and working
programs for the projects.

Some of the projects are... a light pen, how to make a joystick, paddle
controllers, analog light sensor, digital light sensor, burglar alarm,
and Robotics.

This book is out of print and may be very hard to get through a book store.
I have a copy, That I'll let go for $5.00.

Hope this helps...
