If the linux input event scheme supports RS232/USB adapters, but I am
pretty sure it does not. The problem is mapping the data to input
I am working with Tom Igoe of ITP/NYU to try to figure out ways of
incorporating microcontrollers into the [hid] framework. We have
discussed a few ideas, now its time for some coding to see what
