This tutorial will show how to use the Playstation 2 Controller (PS2) with the Raspberry Pi. We use the Arduberry to adapt the shield to the Raspberry Pi.

Step 1: Hardware Required

  1. Raspberry Pi
  2. Arduberry
  3. Dexter Industries Playstation 2 Controller Shield for Arduino
  4. A Playstation 2 controller or a similar clone (Please Check the wiki for the compatible clones)


<p>What is the benefit to this over a USB to PS2 adapter? </p>
<p>you could use this on phone tablet retropi etc or even multiply the presses you make</p>
<p>could the controller be used as a remote control for XBMC if installed on the Pi? </p>
You can get the button states in Python and C, so if you know how to control the XBMC using any of those two languages, then it should be pretty easy to use the controller as a Remote Control.
<p>Neat concept! I can't wait to see more projects with it.</p>
