@W3C Reviewing Definition of a Standard Gamepad Interface
Thanks to history, many of the devices we have today have become standard as they have dominated the industry. Not so with gamepads! Every manufacturer makes their own and they all are different, even if they look similar.
The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) is looking to level the field By defining a low-level interface, accessing a gamepad in a web app or other application would use the standard interface and not proprietary codes. everyone wins.

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.
