Who doesn’t want to create their own input device or output device for their game? Create the next Guitar Hero or Dance Dance Revolution!
You can do this with the help of an Arduino! Create your own device and hook it up with Unity, sky’s the limit. Create a hand glove to control the hand in your game, a basic gamepad or why not display the players health with flashy LEDs?
Alan Zucconi, an independent developer has created a great tutorial for you how to code your Arduino to speak to your Unity game and vice versa.
