Say--I'm a bit slow on this, but do I understand right that this would allow for 64 buttons to be read basically simultaneously, as well as leaving a few analog I/O pins available?  I ask because I'm interested in rewiring a few of the old Thrustmaster FLCS/TQS/Rudder pedals, which would require 6 axes and (count, count) gosh, 30-40 buttons, and I'm trying to figure a way to do it all.  I was looking at shift registers, but I'm not sure how well that will work.

Let me know if they ever go on sale. I think there'd be a decent market for 'em.

Sorry for the delay everyone...the winners I chose never responded to their private messages. I apologize that the new winners had to wait so long for this to come to a conclusion.

New winners:

mowcius
Submitted several project ideas, any of which will work with the Centipede Shield. Leans a bit toward the output-only side of things, but I think mowcius will find some good uses.

kokuma
The musical instrument idea looks really interesting, and could require a lot of inputs and outputs. Definitely looking forward to seeing what this project looks like!

I am sending PMs to the two new winners to request shipping information.

It should be there already, but with the holiday shipping delays it might be held up. Let me know when you get it...
