Have just got in a pacdrive from Ultimarc

Have yet to test it, but doing alot of research on some of the applications and software available.

Depending what frontend you use, you can light up the buttons needed in each particular game. eg. 1942 would have the shoot and roll buttons light up, galaxian would only have the shoot button, street fighter would light up all 6 buttons.


Can also be used in attract mode, flashing in different patterns.

Use it for anything that needs to be switched on or off up to 48v. Not just lights, but motors, pinball parts, LEGO robotics. The uses are endless.

Lighting up a DDR machine


Using multi colour leds


Or use the pacLED64, which is the big brother


And love the music with this one


I am planning to get the pacLED64, as soon as I master the pacdrive

What a cool idea! Could you use the power feed from it to run servos for 4/8 way joysticks? ala the guys from AA

So they would light up and switch?

It has 5v on board, but you can use any voltage up to 48v to your motor/servo/led, and run the ground back to the board. Instead of switching the power, it switches the ground.

I have seen these boards being used to switch servos on joysticks and also to rotate screen from horizontal to vertical depending on what game is selected.
