Demonstration of the PS3 Controllers in action

NB: The newest source code can now be found at github.

Playstation Navigation and Motion controller

Playstation Navigation and Motion controller

As some of you might have seen, my class for the development boards from www.ghielectronics.com, including FEZ Panda, FEZ domino, FEZ Rhino etc, now also works with the two other PS3 controller: the Navigation and the Motion controller. The Navigation controller works the exact same way as the original Dualshock 3 controller.
The Motion controller is a little different, as all of the commands sent to the controller are sent via the HID Interrupt channel, and not thru the HID Control channel as the Dualshock 3 and Navigation controller. It also use a DATA output request instead of a set output report request. For more information, see the source code and the wiki.

A great thing about the Motion controller is that it features a 3-axis accelerometer, 3-axis gyro, 3-axis magnetomer, a thermometer, and the shiny bulb on the top of course. All these peripherals can by controlled by the FEZ devices too.

Stay tuned as I have almost finished porting the code to Arduino – I will make a new post as soon as I’m finished.
