Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Gather the Things That You Need
1.Usb Gaming Remote
3.Jumper Headers(only for easily connecting)
4. 2*Optocouplers(I made it with ir led and ir diode)
6.Push buttons(I salvage it from old remote )
7. Some wires
Step 2: Connect Female Headers
Connect the female headers to gaming remote's buttons,so we can easily plug our diy console to remote and if we want play with simple remote just disconnect headers and done.
Step 3: Assemble the Foot Pedels
Make the foot pedels with cardboard(I don't recommend,It is not enough tough ) or any material,
You can also add more pedels
Step 4: Make the Steering Wheel Part
Make the steering wheel and add buttons as your wish,I add two buttons downside of steering(for ferrari style shifting lol;p),make base stand for steering wheel and add potentiometer there
Step 5: Steering Wheel
Step 6: Now to the Programing Part
I was using arduino only for rotation proportional to the potentiometer value.As we rotate the potentiometer the arduino turn on and off the optocoupler with delay propotional to the potentiometer value.If you are making console for plane etc,then you can also add one more potentiometer for ruder control just edit code(it is very easy).Here is the code for project
Step 7: Watch the Video.....
Step 8: And We'r Done
