A 3D printed, ruggedized arcade controller #Gaming #3Dprinting #3dThursday
Facelesstech has constructed a very ruggedized game controller capable of withstanding shipping nearly anywhere.
After making my pi man arcade, I didn’t really use it that much. I decided to sell it and promised myself I would make a stand alone arcade controller. So I ordered the joystick and button but just sat on them for a few months.
Arduino pro micro
6x light up 16mm industrial buttons
Mini industrial joystick (4 way switch)
2x m3 screws
See the details in the video below, the blog post and the Arduino code here.
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.
