Trammell Hudson made a replica of the Wipeout game from Hackers – check out more info here.
In the film “Hackers”, the club Cyberdelia had a standup Wipeout game with a dual stick controller. The actors aren’t actually playing the game — it was pre-rendered and they are just moving the sticks — but we want it for our Hackers 20th anniversary party at NYC Resistor.
I used a Teensy to convert this rare two-stick PS1 controller into a USB joystick. Code is in github/osresearch/wipeout. Unfortunately the game doesn’t accept analog inputs for the ship controls, which makes it rather hard to play.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
