Hobbyists, developers and electronic enthusiasts searching for an easy way to control up to 12 servos from a PlayStation 4 controller may be interested in a new piece of hardware called the ServoShock 2 created by the development team at Cross Product. The ServoShock 2 development board has been designed explicitly for PlayStation controllers and allows you to control servos and digital outputs with the Sony DualShock 4 controller via either a USB or Bluetooth connection.
ServoShock 2 is also compatible with the T.Flight HOTAS 4 joystick, and 3DConnexion SpaceExplorer, SpaceNavigator, or SpaceMouse Wireless and no programming experience is required, merely plug in your servos, and the development board will manage the rest. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the ServoShock 2 servo controller.
ServoShock 2 can support up to 12 servos and 18 digital outputs with four servo channels mapped to the analogue joysticks. 2 servo channels mapped to the triggers, four servo channels mapped to 2 virtual joysticks on the touchpad. Finally, two servo channels are mapped to the X/Y tilt sensor and 18 digital outputs mapped to the buttons and triggers.
The ServoShock 2 servo control board has this week launched via Kickstarter with the aim of raising $5, 000 over the next 40 days. Pledges are available from just $55 with shipping expected to take place during April 2018.
