Game On! Our 2.4GHz wireless games controllers are perfect for all of your Raspberry Pi gaming or robotics needs.
The controllers come with a USB receiver for plugging into your Raspberry Pi (or even your PC) and are powered by three AAA batteries (not included).
Please note: These are not Bluetooth controllers - they're 2.4GHz wireless (and come with the USB receiver).
Great for Gaming
Compatible with RetroPie/Lakka - simply plug in the controller at boot and follow the controller setup instructions.
You may need to configure buttons for the specific emulator/game you're playing. The RetroPie/Lakka websites and forums are a great place to find out more about button assignments.
For analogue control, make sure you press the analogue button on the controller to enable full analogue thumbstick action (otherwise this is seen as simple button clicks)
Rad for Robotics
You can also use the excellent Approximate Engineering Input library!
Install the library by using the following commands:
sudo apt-get install python-dev python-pip gcc
pip3 install approxeng.input
Please run your script with Python 3 when using this library (Python 2 may not work).
