Title: ps3 controller input
Post by: DFTBA on Nov 15, 2012, 02:31 am
I'd like to connect my ps3 controller to my arduino with the USB cable. Is this possible? I assume there's got to be a library out there...

You'll need a USB host shield. The CircuitsAtHome shield has a PS3 controller library.

And where would I find a schematic for such a shield?

Oh, there it is. It was broken before.
