Dustin Evansfound himself with a few Xbox 360 casings lying around. He ripped all of the remaining hardware out of these boxes and found that what remained was a decent sized box to mount just about anything in. The sturdy design of the 360, which is also just about the perfect shape and size for an arcade controller, seems like an obvious choice when you see it all disassembled like that. With a little bit of measuring to determine spacing that agreed with his hands, and the right parts, Evans was able to make his arcade controller.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
