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.

Have the boards being claimed yet? I'm looking forward to seeing those projects  :D

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

mowcius

Yeah I am waiting for them :D

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:

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.

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.

Yeah :D

I will be documenting all my projects with it on my website (when I eventually get it online!)

You thinking about selling these? guess i am gonna need one after all for my robot... what fun. And this might be a bit cheaper than making one myself.

mowcius

Has this been sent off yet? I am eagerly waiting for a play with it. My lasers have arrived now. I will have 40 in a few weeks, fun fun!

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

Ok brilliant. Yeah everything has been slow recently and that was before we had all the snow!

It'll be sliding its way towards me no doubt  :P

Meanwhile, i've been out on my mountain unicycle in the snow :D
