    DIY ButtonBoxV2 How-To and Sketch for the Community FOR FREE

    Hi Community,

    as part of the construction of my previous ButtonBox versions I've put a lot of time and work and learned quite a bit and are constantly getting new ideas through the Community. Everything has startet with a conventional keyboard that I've taken apart and starting with 0 premonition. Each of you has the fun of do-it-yourself and be happy about the result, I would recommend yourself to build a box. There are anyway copies of the functionality and design, then I can also publish background informations . That is why I publish at this point my Arduino sketch, he's the trick to the whole magic .

    In the future I would like to read into the Arduino WiFi Shield on a UDP data and processing, but here I am asked on the knowledge of the "real Brains" in the community. As the saying goes: give and take, one hand washes the other . So if someone intends equal and knows how to do it (so far I have not yet experimented with the Arduino WiFi shield) , please contact me .

    Have fun and feel free to donate me

    This is cool.

    I have created a similar setup using an Adafruit Trinket. Can you allow access to your sketch and i can compare with mine and maybe share good ideas.

    thanks.

    Very nice setup and work!

    I've downloaded your sketch and have to say, very good, easy to handle and almost everything included allready!
    For all who want to try this, a little more detailed explanation.

    On markets like aliexpress or even ebay you can find an Arduino Leonardo Board for ~5US$ including shippnig to allmost all over the world.
    ! make sure it's and Leonardo Version if you like to use all the options memoric77 has programmed for us!

    Download Arudino IDE -> use google to find the latest version
    Download the sketch from memorics link in the first post.
    Install Arudino IDE on your computer
    Load the sketch into Arduino IDE (make adaptions to the code if you like )
    Compile and transfer it to the Board.
    That's it!

    If you now close the connection between for example pin 2 and pin 7 on the Board, you can see as in a MS Word session or your notepad that you generate an "1".
    2 and 8 is an "2" etc. etc.

    Very simple.
    Thanks again to memoric77 for this nice piece of work - good job!
