After discovering that Logitech wireless things work much better if I don’t plug the receiver directly into the computer (because science), it reminded me of another Logitech device that I’d dismissed earlier: The Logitech Cube.
And by using an USB extension cord, it, too, has an acceptable range, so I could actually use it for something… if I figured out what I could use it for.
I mean, it only generates two keystrokes:
And Page Down if you hold it this way and click.
Or the other way around. I forget.
If you just put it on a table and click on it, it decides that it wants to be a mouse instead, so the click turns into a mouse click, which is definitely not what I want.
Hm… but I do have gaffa tape. I wonder what’ll happen if I just gaffa the sensor on the bottom.
It works! So it can be used as a single purpose HID button. If I had something where that would be useful, and that didn’t use the Page Down key for something else.
Or… I could perhaps just use the event remapper thing from the previous post, come to think of it. But I don’t really have any projects that would require such a button right now, so back into the Cupboard Of Mystery it goes again.
I apologise for besmirching Logitech’s, er, good? name.
