DIY Bluetooth Gamepad

In this project we’re building a DIY gamepad using the Bluefruit EZ-Key module and a 3D printed case.

The Bluefruit EZ-Key HID keyboard controller is a bluetooth breakout design for making DIY keyboards and game pads. It’s requires no programing and works with just about any trigger or push button. It takes up to 12 inputs and can be powered with any 3-16 VDC.

The Perma-Proto comes in different sizes which is perfect for making all sorts of projects. The ½ sized Perma-Proto breadboard is like a business card and which makes it perfect for making a small game controller.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!

The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
