is it possible to connect a rotary encoder to a USB A input?
i've been using a laptop for a long time now and my laptop
uses a touchpad scrollwheel. as we all probably know: they s*ck.
lately i found instruction on how to make a desktop scrollwheel (https://www.instructables.com/id/Desktop_Scroll_Wheel_and_Volume_Control/), but is was very unclear and
very large. ik started thinking of making one myself.
smaller than the one they build. i would make it out of a tictac barrel and an old
rotary encoder from an even older mouse. i want to use USB A input becouse
that's easy to use and it's on (almost) every computer.
is there any way to connect the A,B,C pins of the rotary encoder
to the pins of a USB A input?
p.s. i know, my english s*cks
