    and interface with it using girder?

    Thanks,

    I am talking with one of the tech guys at phidgetsusa right now about this. There may be a way to do this without having to use girder (functions would map directly to key strokes). I'll post when I hear more.

    Well, the folks at PhidgetsUSA are confident that it can work. It just needs a little programming to work with whatever frontend we are using. I'm going to buy a circular and maybe a linear if I decide I like that too and get to learning how to program it. I'm a mech-e so this programming stuff is all new to me.

    I plan on more than volume control for it though so stay tuned.

    One thing I like about the linear is that you can program it so that different sections are "soft" buttons. I think the max is 8. But, that means that you can switch buttons based on whatever feature you were using at the time. I think the circular can be programmed in this way, but it could be hard to determine which one is which if you are trying to hit each octant as a separate button.

    Still working on this, I haven't forgot about it. Just coming along slow since I don't know any programming (and the devices are backordered).
