Anyone built a wireless stick out of this?


#1

I thought about this idea a long time back when playing Dance Dance Revolution for a wireless pad, but has anyone ever built a wireless stick out of one of these?

I already know that they work quickly, and can register two directions at once if need be, plus the pcb has to be tiny.

Not that I know of actually.

Take the plunge and try it.

I would be worried about input delay…a controller like that was not necessarily meant to be used for playing GAMES…so that could be an issue.

Plus, even if input delay isn’t a problem…I bet you that board is MUCH smaller and probably a little more challenging to solder to.

Then you have the issue of having to physically replace batteries, so you had better work out a solution for that.

In all, it seems like much more work and risk than hacking a wired pad.
