Picture of Arduino Windows and PS3 Controller
This guide will show you how to turn your Arduino Uno into a Windows/PS3 controller. It is fully configurable and you can change the input/output to whatever button you want. This means that you can hook a wii nunchuck up to it and play around with the coding a bit until it works. Really you can hook any type of sensor or whatever you want to it as long as you have enough inputs and outputs.

Step 1: Whats Required

The only items that are required are:

*Arduino Uno(Untested on other models but still might work)
*A way to connect your Arduino to a Windows computer
*A Windows Computer
*A way to ground the DFU mode pins as seen in picture

i got an error message saying:

Arduino: 1.6.3 (Windows 8.1), Board: "Arduino Uno"

PS3WinControl.ino:2:19: fatal error: INCLUDE: No such file or directory

compilation terminated.

Error compiling.

This report would have more information with

"Show verbose output during compilation"

enabled in File > Preferences.

You can plug in any controller that you want to it
I might have to give this a try :) always looking for new things to do with my Arduinos.
