usbSimInput

This is something I’ve had in the back of my mind for a while and finally got around to designing a schematic and board layout. It is a 128 button USB HID joystick. Why would you want one of those? To use as inputs for your flight simulator of course. 🙂

The firmware is still alpha and untested but should be pretty straightforward. Once I get some boards made and the firmware finished I will provide some updates, as well as share the source code and schematic.

Update: The boards are on order have shipped

The board was created using the free version of EAGLE and exported to POV-Ray using Eagle3D. Using POVRay a sequence of 720 images were rendered and then turned into the video below using ffmpeg.
