USB spinner with magnetic sensor


Recommended Posts

I made a USB spinner controller using an AS5601 magnetic rotary sensor and an stm32f103c8t6 blue pill. The spinner is ball-bearing mounted and super smooth, and the plastics are 3D printed. Parts cost is about $20. As is usual for USB spinners, the spinner is mapped to the horizontal axis of a mouse. It also has an optional port where you can plug a Wii Nunchuck for games that need a stick and a spinner (e.g., Mad Planets).


There is also a mode (press button 3 while turning it on) where it emulates Stelladapted 2600 Driving Controller.
