USB led output and key input board (can it be supported)
« on: April 06, 2008, 03:03:45 AM »
Sorry if this has been discussed before but I could not find anything via search.

I have found a 16 input (emulator style) 16 output led output (RGB support) device called a ledwiz.
http://groovygamegear.com/webstore/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=82&products_id=306

This device is USB and supports PWM intensity. Using RGB LEDs (common anode), theoretically 110,592 colors are possible.

Price is $39.95. It gets it's power via usb and reports like a gamepad for the purpose of input.

I thought it would be awesome if this device could be accessed via mach3 (brains possibly).  I know the input portion would be doable with keygrab
but I don't know how the led control would we be implemented.

This is beyond my ability so I thought I would put it out there for anyone who might see it's potential.
