    Lightbulb Phidget interface (0/0/4 * 8/8/8 * 0/16/16) external application

    Hello guys,

    I was wondering, I am really interested in getting this Phidget 0/0/4 usb kit.
    I am looking for someone to dev an external application to control the windows and central locking of the car.

    a bit like this:


    but it would have to be integrated within MediaCar.

    Can this be done, or is it too difficult?
    Phidget has all the software and source availlable on their website.

    Regards
    Stephane

    It's a pretty easy stand alone app. I dunno about integration with MediaCar.

    where'd U get a 0/0/4 ? and how much ?

    (I'm interested in phidgets, but not for the ~$150 price it would cost to start playing around with them.

    How difficult it would be for you to get something going ?

    It would be really easy to get something going. I know very little VB, but there are tons of applications out there that control phidgets, I'm sure there's something along these lines.

    I'de love to help, but I really haven't gotten into that phidgets much yet.

    Just out of curiousity, what do they run on? USB? COM ports? If its on the COM port then it should not be very difficult to do (I wrote a callerID app by parsing COM chatter). I have some skin code in Delphi (my main programming lang.), the only thing I need is to revert to the original position after a click. This would be interesting, I'd just need to figure out how to get the skin to go back to the original bitmap

    USB, but phidget makes good use of public APIs and libraries of all sorts. They're well documented if you check out their sites.
