Raspberry Pi Quiz Game using the Buzz Controllers

In this Raspberry Pi quiz game project, we will be showing you how you can utilize a PlayStation Buzz controller with your Raspberry Pi to run a simple quiz.

Throughout this tutorial, we will walk you through the process of interacting with the Buzz controllers by utilizing the hidapi library for Python.

The hidapi library will allow us to communicate directly with the Buzz controllers, including retrieving data back from them and writing data to them to switch on and off their red LEDs.

By the end of this tutorial, you will of learned how to read information about all your USB devices. Learned how to read data that the devices are sending back and also how to write a library that will act as a simple wrapper to dealing with the device.

All of this will conclude in writing a simple quiz game that will make use of all the functionality that we programmed into our Buzz Controller library.

You can find the full tutorial on how to use your PlayStation Buzz Controllers on the Raspberry Pi below. It’s one of our longer Raspberry Pi projects, so grab a cup of coffee.”
