xbox360 chatpad, awsome backlit mini keyboard
the minute I saw this keyboard I knew I wanted it in my install, I've seen & had many small keyboards, but none ever looked as kool as this one, & backlit just sealed the deal for me.
I bought it & I have no idea how I could even connect it to my carpc, but I figured microsoft, xbox, pc? there HAS to be a way....
I haven't had much time to research anything as far as using an xbox controller on a pc, but I know I've seen microsoft xbox style controllers for the pc, could it be that easy to interface this?
I'm not talking about using the controller in my hand with this keyboard attached to it, I'm talking about the keyboard built into the dash, molded in & all, or maybe a center console? an ejecting compartment? this thing looks beautiful for it's shape, to be molded in & permanently installed.
the controller itself must contain the tx/rx portion, so it would be difficult to use the keyboard without any controller, but the controller can be remote mounted & buried, or the joystick from it could also be used in an install., could also extend a few of the controller buttons, could even be hotkeys for ctl+alt+del, windows key, whatever....
so, anyone have any ideas about how this could be used with a pc?:D
