It also provides the Arduino and Processing codes to immediately start playing !
Ideal for quick prototyping of games and electronic setup, as well as for educational purposes
Step 1: Prepare the tactile keyboard
Shapes, dimensions, and arrangement of the keys can be varied. In this example, I used triangle shapes arranged in a Top/Down/Left/Right configuration to create a game controller.
Round shapes in a line, can make a keyboard, for a visual or musical control panel, for example.
Step 2: Wire the keyboard to the breadboard
Then twist the wires so that they reach the breadboard. The wires might be sufficient to hold the keyboard in the air, otherwise you may build a simple cardboard base, for example.
Step 3: Connect the Arduino
Connect the wires dangling from each of the keyboard keys, to one end of each of the resistors.
