Introducing the Arduino Playstation DualShock Shield, a shield for easily connecting your Playstation DualShock controller to your Arduino.
How it Works
Dexter Industries Dualshock Shield for the Arduino slides over the Arduino UNO, and Mega. This shield is a Playstation DualShock controller interface for the Arduino. Rather than splice up controller wires, destroy your controller, and guess which wire goes where, you simply slide this over your Arduino, plug in your controller, and you’ve got the awesome combination of a form-fitting controller and an open-source micro-controller. Software is easy with a ready-made library. Robot domination shouldn’t be too far behind.
This shield will fit on most Arduinos. We have tested it on the Arduino Uno, Mega and ADK. The easiest way to get up and running is to use our fork of Bill Porters super-easy library found on github here. There is a ready made library for the Arduino, and some easy to follow example code.
The shield comes fully assembled and does not require any assembly. Slide it on and go!
This project has been tested with a few controllers, listed on our website here.
