Can I use a thumb style joystick without a microcontroller?
I've been thinking about using a thumb-style joystick in an upcoming project (like this one
) and making it go digital instead of analog (like this
) but the only things I can find on such joysticks are with microcontrollers. I planned on using it to send a key stroke by using the guts of an old keyboard to make a diy emulator controller (like this
) and I was wondering if this were at all possible or if it needed a microcontroller.
