Were you ever the kind of person to hack up your own Playstation controllers and hook it up to something else? Well, those shards of plastic can be mighty dangerous, so I’ve done it for you. And hey, with the GamePack you’ll even have something you can hook it up to.
The GamePack comes with an Arduino, MeCap Backpack, TouchShield Stealth or Slide, ExtenderShield and an InputShield- everything you need to create your own open source, portable gaming device. Want to create a whole new gaming platform? Why not?
I’ve just added a new option for wide screen that includes the new TouchShield Slide. It’s brand new so I haven’t written a lot of code for it yet, but it’s just as easy to program as the TouchShield Stealth.
