The Infinity USB Knob #Trinket #TrinketM0 @Hackaday @HackadayIO
Hackaday.io user vincentmakes posts a terrific project, building a stylish control knob which can plug into a computer for control.
I found very few solutions that would allow me to execute repetitive keyboard actions. It is something that could be useful when working with Lightroom or Photoshop in order to quickly reverse a few actions back and forth to visualize the result.
All commercial items I found are task specific and not very customizable, so I decided to build my own.
By using the push button on the rotary encoder, I should be able to switch between pre-defined shortcut and get a visual feedback using the NeoPixel ring.
I also want to make something accessible to anyone and easy to reproduce.
