Another (Completed!!) project is a DDR (Dance dance revolution) board for the Dreamcast.
I will let the pictures speak for themselves but it is made of MDF with thin aluminium sheet contact cemented down over the top, L-brackets and polycarbonate squares for the pads. Wiring it up was as easy as soldering to the correct buttons on the control pad.
Nice one! angusgr — Fri, 11/06/2010 - 10:07am Nice one! What are the switch contacts on the pads made out of? Any problems with durability?
**The contacts are just micro switches** *Combust — Tue, 15/06/2010 - 10:16am* The contacts are just micro switches that are in contact with the polycarbonate squares. The mounting points for them are adjustable so you can minimise issues with timing. All I can say is its solid. No problems with anything wearing out so far Smile
