IR Pens / Middle Click/Scrolling
« on: October 12, 2008, 09:10:11 PM »
Has anyone seen any external device ...compatible with mac... that allows for middle click/scrolling? I work with Maya and a middle mouse button is absolutely imperative, and the scroll - well not to that degree, but still needed.

I did some browsing through several mac forums, and havent even found software for middle click emulation through a keyboard.

You'd think it'd exist considering the previouse version of the Apple mouse only had one button!

So if it's a pressure sensitive pen on the back of it, isn't the pen clip getting in away along with those buttons?

I've thought about using a spring, but the only thing is, wont the metal on the spring itself complete the circuit? And how are you keeping the LED erect?

How does the pen itself retract? Is there two metal pieces pressing it back and forth? And if so, whats the use for the spring?

I've bothered Uwe with multiple technical difficulties and my un-understandings, but  for good or for ill, there's no forum. So I thought this may be a common issue, so I posted here. I dont have an IR cam, but I will try with several LEDs and several batteries as I dont have any other IR detector. I'll post my progress.


Welll....I've tried testing with my apple remote (battery on it's ok, I mean it works on my macbook and everything), but no detection from EITHER of my two wiimotes, which made me doubt that the problem's in the hardware. I also bought a new IR led, hooked it up to a ni-mh battery (tested OK with a voltometer), and still nothing detected. I just dont get why it worked and stopped all of a sudden.

So, I've got a working battery, 2 working wiimotes, and detection on the screen with uwe schmidt's mac adaptation of the software, everything's perfect. Then all of a sudden, it just stopped working. I have no idea why, the wiimotes are detected, the battery works, I just got another LED just for kicks, and yeah - ZIP. NADA. no detection.

Why may this be hmmmm...

I tried deleting the two wiimotes from the bluetooth prefs and my macbook found em again, but no dice. Any help sure appreciated.
