Retro fitting a old joystick/controller for modern games

This project is set to retrofit an old joystick/controller to work as a flight stick for pc flying games.   The system will use an arduino Teensy to make it pc compatible, a 16 Key Alphanumeric Keypad for mode selecting, One OLED display to show the mode, one Ir control kit for media control and a Saitek X36 joystick to house it all.   The arduino Teensy is able to nativly act as a Keyboard, Mouse, Joystick and a Midi device. the teensy will be connected to a rewired Saitek X36 joystick. Extras will be added later, extras may include an OLED display   To Use: Saitek X36 USB Gameport   Teensy 3.1     Thumb Slide Joystick...

Arduino Lights

arduino: open source micro controllers Arduino is an open source community micro controller that can do almost anything! That’s a big claim…..but it’s true Basically arduino is a way to move from a computer into the real world, so stuff just doesn’t happen on the screen but can turn on a light, activate a motor, take data from the world like through switches and sensors. press the red button to go to the ‘arduino page’ This code turns on and off LED lights +++++++++++ // LED code with switch const int pin13 = 13; const int pin12 = 12; void setup () { pinMode(pin13, OUTPUT); pinMode(pin12, OUTPUT); pinMode(2, INPUT); pinMode(3, INPUT); Serial.begin(9600); } void...
