View Full Version : [all variants] two USB mice wheels to keyboard inputs

April 7th, 2010, 04:57 PM
I have two spare old USB mice and I want to use their wheels to send different keyboard signals.
Obviously I want both of them connected at the same time and living together with my usual mouse (USB as well) normally operating.

For example:
first mouse -> normal pointer operations

second mouse
wheel up -> PageUp
wheel down -> PageDown

third mouse
wheel up -> ArrowUp
wheel down -> ArrowDown

I can see two main steps:
1- make every mouse behaviour independent (avoiding interferences with pointer actions)
2- manage to convert signals from USB wheel to keyboard signals

Is this possible?
I bet somehow it is ;), but can you give me some hints to begin my little project?

thank you very much!
