Simple Bluetooth Joystick

In this post I will introduce a couple of Arduino scripts and the accompanying circuitry needed to make a very simple Bluetooth joystick. The first script simply provides you with all the basic code needed to read from a simple PS2 style joystick. This script is then expanded to include the capability for joystick calibration. Calculated calibration values are saved to the micro-controllers EEPROM so that they can be automatically retrieved next time the hardware is connected. ...more

Unity3D Serialport Script

This post presents a script and or prefab developed to allow drag and drop capability for serial communication within the Unity3D game development ecosystem. This in turn allows for the use of  custom gaming controllers and hardware developed on platforms such as Arduino and Netduino within Unity applications. The script is included at the end of the post and is also available for download. As always it is fully commented so that you can hopefully easily work out what is going on with the code. Events Update 06.03.2014 Please note that his script has been updated to both include event triggers and the removal of the threaded  update loop. For more information please see the post: Adding Events to the Serialport Script. ...more
