I Built a Terrible N64 Controller for GameGrumps
Because you can. This hilarious video shows you how to make a N64 controller that operates by screaming, no ‘B’ Button.
William Osman blog:
I hacked an N64 controller, so the player has to scream instead of pressing ‘B’.
I used a relay and microphone to hijack the Nintendo controller’s ‘B’ button. If a player wants to press ‘B’ they need to make noise loud enough to trigger the relay.
NO ARDUINO OR PROGRAMMING REQUIRED just super janky electronics.
Arin Hanson of GameGrumps invited us to visit their office, and it’s not proper to show up empty handed.
As for where ‘scream sensor’ came from, I’ve got this box of ‘Arduino sensor modules’ and we dug through it imagining how you’d play old N64 games with inputs other than buttons.
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.
