  • Hi guys I think I have a problem with this product. I’m trying to simply read with arduino the state of the directional pin ,but whenever I move the ball in any direction,the state of the related pin freezes on HIGH and won’t change unless I roll the ball that direction some more times. For example : A0 connected to UP pin -> I roll the ball toward the UP direction -> analogRead(A0) constantly giving me 1023 (HIGH) even if I’m not touching it anymore ; if I roll the ball toward UP again,it suddenly stops giving signals. Is it normal? Is it related to sensors? It does it with all the direction btw. Thanks in advance.

No public wish lists :(
