Simple physical control for racing games

This project was made on a rainy weekend, I was showing Trackmania to my 5 years boy and while he was trying to play the game, he was actually struggling with the keys, so I had the idea of hacking an old remote control of a broken toy.

Just hooked an Arduino Leonardo to the steering wheel and throttle sticks  and assigned key strokes for TrackMania. For the ones who don’t know trackmania, its a free racing game and very cool to play with, I should say very addictive too!

Loads of fun of course!! :D
