Hmm you might walk down the hardware isle at your local home Depot and see what you find.
I've featured your comment!
Just did a quick search and it seems that it is possible to use the digispark to emulate a keyboard. Check this link: https://digistump.com/board/index.php?topic=20.0Let me know if it is useful. Also: https://www.google.com/webhp?sourceid=chrome-insta...
Yeah that'd be pretty easy. But I believe you'd need to use an arduino leonardo, (or pro micro)All you need to do is use an encoder library, and map the rotations to a virtual keyboard emulated by the leonardo. I haven't done it, so this is just speculation on my part. Let me know if you are interested in trying it.
Always amazed at what I see people do. That's pretty freakin awesome, man!
Wow that's a really cool design! Isn't the round hole on the bottom of the thick lego the right size to fit onto the encoder where the knob goes?
Use the pins on the encoder itself to determine how to connect it. The side with 2 pins is the switch--The side with 3 pins is the encoder. For the encoder, wire it just as in the crude diagram that I have in the instructable. All you need to do is trace the connection on the encoder itself to the connection on the board you have that the encoder is attached to.
There should be 3 pins for the encoder, and two pins for a push button for mute--Totaling 5 pins :)
Wow! that is genius! I will do it like that too!
Thats awesome dude! You turned the project into something very iunteresting.
Awesome! XD how did you get it to work?
There should be one common point and two switching pins. connect ground from the digispark to the common point (generally center pin) then connect the I/O pins to the switching pins.Sorry, I don't know anything about that encoder--I recommend you buy a new one; they are pretty cheap.
What I used is not a potentiometer. a potentiometer will not work for this project. does the encoder you have use 3 pins?

Since it uses a rotary encoder instead of a potentiometer, it can turn endlessly. :)Does that answer your question?

Wow, I am truly amazed. yours looks like you paid $100 for it! Definitely a nice desk piece--Where did you get the alluminum part?
Dang! thats a great freakin idea, mate! Why didn't I think of that??? Thank you for sharing your work with me--I may actually mount it the way you have done. Looks really nice.
