Xbox 360 chatpad

Ever wanted to input text easily into your Pokitto with a real keyboard? Yes? OK Then…

First thing, grab an old xbox 360 chatpad. I got mine from a local used games store (well from their website) for the bargain price of 50p…
To connect it to your Pokitto, the following PEX connections will be used -

EXT6 = Rx
EXT7 = Tx

They are connected to the chatpad as follows

Don’t worry about the other pins (5,6,7), they aren’t needed.

Once you have that done, the following project will get you on your way! (10.1 KB)

Here is a quick look at the one I put together. Notice the joystick and buttons, they’re compatible with the joystick hat, it has rumble too! :stuck_out_tongue:

You’ll notice it’s mounted upside down, that’s just to make it easier to use. I’ve been told that there could be a flip screen option added to pokittolib soon :-)…


That’s pretty cool for 50p. What are you planning for it? A PR to flip the screen apparently, but what else?

@spinal no PR yet :cry:

Hey, I just have ideas, it’s on other people to make them useful :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

I think I did it just now :slight_smile:

You did too … nice work. Will work for the Joystick hat too.

I made sure to test keyboard + joystick to make sure :slight_smile:
If only I tried putting the radio in there also :stuck_out_tongue:

There’s a bit of work with the conflicts, its not an instant merge. I will try to get it done soon.

@spinal please pull and test that it works now as you intended

Screen flip working as intended, as does mixmode
