Anyone got a source for something like this? I've looked all over the place but can't find anything that I like.

Thx!

Yourdunio lists the following in their electronic bricks section.  It uses a single analog wire, to encode all 5 buttons: http://arduino-direct.com/sunshop/index.php?l=product_detail&p=334

Or perhaps you want a joystick (looks like 2 analog inputs and a digital input): http://arduino-direct.com/sunshop/index.php?l=product_detail&p=298

Search "membrane keypad" on ebay.  Lots of weird and esoteric keypad choices.  Most are row/column addressable like your basic 4x4.  Check out some of the ones I found.  You may be interested in the top one:

I have only come here seeking knowledge. Things they would not teach me of in college.
