USB Tutorial: USB Spinner or Jog Wheel

Sifting through the Instructables website I came along this retro looking USB spinner wheel or Jog wheel. The USB tutorial project is a bit complicated and requires some technical know-how, so if you are looking to increase your mod skill sets, this might be the project for you. So what is something like this good for anyway?  The jog wheel functions like your wheel on that mouse you have, but larger and has good momentum which is nice when searching through large bits of code, viewing long webpages or searching through numerous documents. A job wheel is also excellent for media editing like sound or video.  You can scroll around in these large files effortlessly and without stressing out your finger from the mouse scroll wheel.  With the heaviness of the VCR head you can get the motion going and it’s inertia will keep it spinning for quite some time and when you’ve found the frame you’re looking for, just hold the wheel to stop it. Enough about the sales pitch of a DIY project, jump over to Instructables and check out the tutorial yourself.
