Girder supports Phidgets!

That's awesome, I am looking at using some phidgets in my car to automated windows and such, they really got some cool hardware!

You should be able to play with these in HS (or other programs as well), shouldn't you? The interface is done using objects (as far as I can tell). They have an example using vbscript and createobject (on the phidgets site). Can't you do this within an HS script as well?

I don't mean to downplay the girder interface, which I think is a good idea. Just trying to determine/point out the versatility of these phidgets.

Edit follows...
By the way, despite my emphasis of scripting above, I do think that for some applications of some of the phidgets devices you would want to use a plugin.

This isn't a plug-in...

Its done via scripting, so I agree that it can probably be done in HS too. I just don't know how to do it (Com Objects and the like), so this is a great place for me to jump off from.
