Holiday Programme - Games Controller

USB Games Controller

This one is going to be popular!  Come build your very own “USB Game Controller”, based around the Arduino Microcontroller.

 This device comes with a 2m long USB cable that plugs into any computer USB port.  Once connected the controller lets you play all your favourite video games just as if you had a store bought controller.  Joysticks, four button keypad, front triggers, plus colour changing LEDs shine out the side of the perspex frame.

 On the day you’ll get to customise the top of your controller with spray paint, wire and solder the components together plus screw and assemble all the pieces.  And, of course, you get to take your creation home!

 No previous experience is required (although this project does require some quite intricate soldering) and you’re welcome to bring a grown up if you want to.

Please note this is a one day workshop so students should only book for one session.
