This instructable describes a quick and simple way to create a tactile keyboard or game controller using
- aluminium foil,
- and an Arduino.
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
Cut pieces of aluminum foil to make the keys. Simply tape them to a piece of cardboard.
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.
