It works with Arduino UNO as well.
I tested it successfully with mine using UnoJoy.
Isn't programming the second mcu required for this?
looks like UnoJoy is a firmware for the serial comm chip
would seem a little too much for someone just getting started
I'm with mike on this one, but I would go further to suggest the Arduino Mirco as well. Dont know about else where but they stock them at my local electronics shop
- and i think there's a library needed to be called to make this thing works
its integrated when you select leonardo, micro, lilypad usb,(MEGA34u4 chip) or due. Given you have any of these boards.
otherwise I think your in for a bit of hacking, checkout UnoJoy
