first of all, i'm REALLY a newbie in this whole electronic thing, but i'm very interested and i bought a arduino recently to learn. so dont judge me, okay? :P
i also want to have this done. i want to make a special wii game controller usable for PC. in other words, the arduino should get the current state if its pressed or not. its a drum controller for a music game (its like the drums from the game drum rocker)
i disassebled the drum and inside, it looks like this: http://i60.tinypic.com/whz1x4.jpg
the wire on the right side goes to a wii controller, its a extention like the nunchuck where it also get energy. i cut the wire on the right side on the end. i don't know if you guys can read it, but on the right sides, the pins are labeled as GND (ground) GND (ground) SCL (datastream?) SDA (datastream?) DET (DET = detection?) VDD (power)
i put the VDD wire to the 3.3V port and GND to GND (doh). and SCL, SDA, DET to the analog port. then i tried to read data from SCL, SDA and DET. all of them give "685~687" no matter if i press on the sensor or not.
how can i get this to work?
thank you guys
