I'm curious of what your opinion is for the best way to wire these to a microcontroller. I can think of a few different possibilities. After hooking the pins to my multimeter it seems like the ball sometimes only sits on 3 of the 4 pins (3 pins form the circle, so it's not a big surprise that one of the 4 pins sometimes doesn't touch the ball). So, now I'm wondering which pins to use for contact. Or maybe tie some pins together. Please advise how it's intended to be connected.
