Benito with i2c and USB midi

Submitted by ax on Fri, 2008-10-17 16:58

I grabbed two of those 36 key keypad boards from Paul at the last dork bot, he grabbed them out of those POS boxes [with the big LCDs that he has posted info about]. I wanted to get them working with the Benito and also wanted work with i2c a little [as I have a bunch of these 8bit i2c i/o expanders]. The keypad has 20 i/o pins so the Benito cannot use it directly anyways.. though 12 bits of shift registering would probably be better... but either way, I wanted to use what I had + i2c.

The Evil Benito Mouse

To take advantage of the Benito's small size, I've zapped mine with a piece of software that, when plugged into a computer, causes the mouse to jump about randomly.

The size of the jitter can be adjusted by setting the "STEP" constant. 10 seems to be a pretty good number to make it seem like there's something wrong with your mouse. Anything larger, and it's pretty obvious that you're being messed with.
