NEW GUIDE: DIY Adaptive Game Controllers @adafruit @johnedgarpark #adafruit #microsoft
It’s never been easier to create adaptive controls to play video games. For gamers with particular needs not met by standard gaming controllers, the Microsoft Xbox Adaptive Controller (XAC) is a fantastic option for managing alternative inputs.
In this new guide by John Park, we’ll learn how to build our own interconnections between large buttons, foot pedals, analog joysticks, and limit switches and the XAC’s button inputs.
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.
