How to emulate an Xbox controller with Arduino
A very cool project you can do with an Arduino is to use it as a custom controller for your favorite games. Whether you’re adapting a Nerf gun or playing an FPS game, using an Arduino makes it quick and easy to build your own custom controller.
In this tutorial, we will see how to program Arduino to emulate an Xbox controller using the ArduinoXInput library. The advice is to use a Leonardo or a 5V Pro Micro however we will see a list of supported microcontrollers (Arduino Uno, Nano and Mega are not on this list as these three boards do not have native USB support and will not work).
The software consists of two related parts: the board package which contains the USB descriptors for the XInput controller and the library with which it is easy to interact.
