Converting Jumper Wires to USB

by Jmeckes on Sun Feb 12, 2017 9:21 pm

Hi, I'm 12, and making a project using the Raspberry Pi and some Adafruit materials. Part of this project is making a controller out of some buttons I purchased. I have the circuit diagram layed out, but I need a way to convert all of the wires connected from the buttons, into a usb output, so I can plug it into my Pi and use it like it was a regular controller. I have no idea how to do this. If anyone has a piece or idea of how to convert these wires to usb, that would be helpful. Thanks.

You could use an EZ-Key: https://learn.adafruit.com/introducing- ... ser-manual
This can be programmed to send keyboard or mouse type reports when you press a button - as in this project:

We also have a USB version of that here: https://learn.adafruit.com/usb-snes-gam ... l#overview
