Pimoroni Player X USB Games Controller PCB - PIM444

Product ID: 4518


This tiny PCB connects to your PC, Mac, or Linux machine via a standard USB micro B cable, and appears as a USB games controller (HID interface). Then it's just a matter of adding some blingy arcade buttons and a joystick as input. Great for making custom user interfaces, arcade setups, or interfacing with basic button-like sensors.

Your buttons and joystick plug into Player X with male DuPont connectors (jumper jerky), which you'll find on one end of Pimoroni's wiring loom

Player X PCBs are also stackable, using M2.5 standoffs, so you can use it to build two-, three-, or even four-player controllers! Super Smash party all night!
