  • Alas not - despite the claims on the LeafLabs site.

    I've been trying to do this for a while, have you had any luck?

  • The DIY FlightSim scene has had USB joystick drivers on AVRs for a while now.
    A quick Google search brought up this: http://www.flightsim.com/main/howto/mind.htm which has links to the relevant specs for joystick HID drivers.
    Try looking through those and seeing if you can add support for joystick HID masquerading in the ATmega8U2

  • Is it just me, or does anyone else want to buy all these replacement parts and build a whole Chumby out of them, just because...

  • Confirmed - both for the header issue and the board orientation.

  • I've just hooked one of these up with software power control - just solder a header on to the breakout, hooking the 5v and 3.3v lines to the emitters on a couple of transistors, then just hook the bases together, hold them low and attach them to your favourite free I/O pin, attaching each transistor's collector to 5v and 3.3v respectively.
    Voila! Software power control - works a treat, if a little messy (but hey, that's what the prototype shield is for!)
    Incidentally, as it is connected to an I/O pin, when you program the Arduino, the GPS is automatically turned off as the pins go floating and I'm pulling the gates low :D

  • It'd be pretty cool to combine these with some small enclosures to use in some modular setup... I'm thinking 3 of these studs per side for 1-wire communication between blocks - anyone up for seeing if it works :D

No public wish lists :(
