AAO generic HID Device Bridge App

Recommended Posts

Hello @ll,

I’ve just uploaded another (free) Bridge app to the AxisAndOhs Weebly website (bottom of the Downloads page)

This bridge is for generic HID devices. So if you have exotic hardware (GoFlight and the likes), where the actual communications protocol is unknown, but that Windows picks up as HID devices, you can try them with the Bridge to see if button presses can be read and transmitted to the AAO WebAPI.

This is currently strictly for incoming events, there is no option to write data back to the device (= displays and LEDs will stay dark).

Please make sure to read the included PDF before starting.

To add: the HID Bridge version 1.04 can send data back to the HID device too. If that works or not depends on the hardware, if it can be controlled with the Windows standard HID device methods or not.

Does this work side-by-side with the VRInsight MCP Combo II Bridge?
Thanks.

Can't see why not. The AAO WebAPI doesn't care about how many clients there are.
