Lunar Lander Controller

 

Objective:

Design and prototype a minimal and ergonomic controller for Lunar Lander online game.

Audience:

Anyone who wants to play the game on a personal computer (Me)

Components:

  1. Joystick breakout module
  2. Arduino Leonardo compatible pro micro board
  3. 3D printed case

Code: 

#include <Keyboard.h>
#include <Mouse.h>
const int SW_pin = 4; // digital pin connected to switch output
const int X_pin = 0; // analog pin connected to X output
const int Y_pin = 1; // analog pin connected to Y output

void setup() {
  pinMode(SW_pin, INPUT);
  digitalWrite(SW_pin, HIGH);
  Serial.begin(9600);
  Keyboard.begin();
  Mouse.begin();
}

void loop() {
  if(digitalRead(SW_pin)==0){
    Mouse.press(MOUSE_LEFT);
    delay(0);
  }
  else if(analogRead(Y_pin)>=540){
    Keyboard.press(218);
    delay(0);
  }
  else if(analogRead(X_pin)>=540){
    Keyboard.press(215);
    delay(0);
  }
  else if(analogRead(X_pin)<=500){
    Keyboard.press(216);
    delay(0);
  }
  else{
    Keyboard.releaseAll();
    Mouse.release(MOUSE_LEFT);
  }
}

Initial prototype:

CAD:

Prototyping problem: 3D printers on the ITP floor didnt work, so tried fixing them, but turns out the nozzles were damaged or needed maintenance, so might take time to get it done.
