    That's definitely an option. I modeled those knobs from the quick look I had at the line art drawings. I'd be glad to make whatever people want. For my knob, I'd like to have the flutes down the length and have a wider base so I can rest my hand on it but I haven't determined exactly how big I'd like and all that. I'll probably make the one I like the best and have extras made then make whatever the other popular choices are.

    I know what I ultimately would want mine to look like, the Mercedes is closest, if I get a chance I'll sketch it... what would it cost to make a few knobs or buttons even? just the though of having custom knobs & buttons made from a sketch kinda turns me on

    I'm working on a deal with a local machine shop so I can get a basic price for each "style" of knob. That way, I don't have to call them every time we make a minor change to what we think we want. I should have base pricing the first half of next week.

    So how hard will it be to write a simple driver for this to send keystrokes based off of movement of the wheel. Already put in my order for one... cant wait to start playing around with it.

    Any FE that has either SDK/API support or keyboard hotkey support, should in theory be usable, the way to go about this i think would be to create a driver/tools that you can define these "bumps, stops,hills and so on" and then map that to either API functions or keyboard presses, for RR i would love to see something that is aware of the current screen type and then be able to change definitions of the encoder setup on that basis.

    Actually i think alot of the basic work is done for integrating this device, as many of the Input devices have projects ongoing to integrate them using HID drivers (which i suspect this device will be seen as by the O/S), one of those is the Spacenavigator from 3dconnexion
