This is a Arduino Gamepad made at home. Most of them are recycled.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: You Will Need:
- An Arduino Leonardo/ Micro board
- A variable resistor
- 2 4.7K resistors and 10 10K resistors
- 13 buttons or more
- 4 useless CDs
- some jacks
- wood and polystyrene
- a PC with Arduino 1.6.6 (or above)
Step 2: Install Arduino Joystick Library
First download this: ArduinoJoystickLibrary
Now open Arduino app and click: Sketch > Include Library > Add .ZIP Library...
Select Joystick folder, you already downloaded. That's it!
Step 3: Steering Wheel
As variable resistor I use a 100K resistor.
I paste 4 CDs to be like an steering wheel.
First pin go to 5V, middle to A0 and the last one to GND.
Step 4: Control Buttons
These are 3 fully assignable buttons.
I conected to A5 using 2 4.7K resistors.
Step 5: Pedals
I used some pieces from an old Cd-Rom to make those hinges.
Step 6: Shifter
Step 7: Programme Arduino
Step 8: Test
For Connected wires to Arduino I used a Prototyping Shiel.
A very good game for this gamepad is Euro Truck Simulator 2.
