Esplora TinkerKit Outputs as Inputs


I was wondering if it would be possible to use the output ports as input ones. i want to add 4 additional push buttons but the t?inkerkit inputs are already taken.

the question would be whether it would be possible to use the outputs as inputs without redesigning the pcb?

I know you can use them to supply power but i dont know about that

I finally pulled out my Esplora to some experimenting with it.
This is an old subject, but the previous Reply didn’t answer the question.

The Answer, though, is: Yes .
[And I figure the same for any of the Digital pins on the “LCD” strip as well.]

I proved it with the following sketch –

#include <Esplora.h>
void setup ()
  pinMode(3, INPUT_PULLUP);
void loop()
  if (digitalRead(3) == LOW)

(The OP didn’t engage, the question remained unanswered. Henceforth, it’s settled.)
