Just had a great idea for using a detachable cd players face
Hey guys im new to the forum, well i have been reading alot on the forum and i thought i will register and share my idea :)
OK, i was thinking of a different way of using the car computer instead of a keyboard, mouse or an lcd touch screen.
Why not use a cd players face and connect the rear connectors on the keyboards pcb in the propper places and so when you press something on the face it acts as a keyboard key being pressed.
It might sound like "wtf this guy is talking $hit" BUT, while in class the other day we were learning about binary and ascii and **** and how the computer knows what keyboard keys you are pressing.
We connected the pc up to an oscilloscope, and when we presed certain keys, it gave us a wave:
like pressing the "A" key would give us _-_____- and if you convert that to binary, would give you 01000001 wich converted to text will give you "A".
I cant remember if it gave us the ascii code for "A" or the binary but it desnt matter.
The thing im saying is, that if we connect a cdplayers face onto a keyboard pcb,
it should output ascii on keypress and if it does, we can bind them keys to the software we use in the car computers.
Like we could bind the eject button to actually eject the cd or when we press something unused like the bassboost, it will play a winamp play list etc
Sorry i cant explain this very clearly but im sre you guys know what i mean.
Anyone done something like this ?
Also, you could get one of those DVD roms that have a slot and have it behind the cd players face so it looks real.
I have drawn how it would be setup in a car (poorly) lol
So what you guys think ?
