Powermate Cough Button

My friend, George Starcher, recently posted about using a Griffen Powermate as an oversized cough button for a podcasting rig. I must admit, since my Podcasting setup doesn’t use a board, I’ve always had a bit of cough button envy and the the MPU listeners can attest to the many random strange sounds that come out of me on some episodes. So I took George’s advice and bought a Powermate. It works brilliantly and sits very nicely next to my Magic Trackpad. Griffen did a good job with the controller software. It even accepts Applescrips. I expect to get creative with this thing. Stay tuned.

    Argh, now I have Powermate envy. I had two of them doing all kinds of crazy things, but they both died over a year ago. I decided to move on with life, but you just made me reconsider. So many things to nerd out with, so little time.
