MIDI Input & Wii Nunchuk Arduino Shield for the NES

FamiiDI: MIDI Input & Wii Nunchuk Arduino Shield for the NES (Nintendo Entertainment System) / Famicom

FamiiDI (FAMicom, wII nunchuk, miDI) is an Arduino shield that reads in data from a MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) serial connection, or a Wii Nunchuk controller, and translates that data to the 15-pin ‘Famicom Expansion Port’ standard.

So these devices that would be other otherwise incompatible: a NES / Famicom, a Nunchuk, and a MIDI keyboard or sequencer – can now talk to each other!
