Trackpoint device creation tip.

#1 Post by Thinkpad4by3 » Thu Jan 17, 2019 9:17 pm

I was just looking around and I found that the Nintendo New 3DS's C-Stick has a very simple 4 pin layout that could be easily be modified to work with an Arduino. This would prevent the destroying of TP keyboards for their trackpoints and it will be easier to wire and customize. Also the modules go for around ~10-15$.

I'm likely going to pick one up and start tinkering. (External portable USB trackpoint module?? :mrgreen: )
Thinkpad4by3's Law of the Universe.

The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.
