JoyBox USB Switch Adaptor
by Sensory Software
A USB switch box with lots of features that work with most popular switch software
The JoyBox is a flexible switch input adaptor that works with most popular switch software without requiring driver software installation.
For any resource centre, the JoyBox is the ultimate switch connection device. It allows 8 switches to be connected for any use, and 4 more switches can be connected for directional control.
When you plug a JoyBox into the USB port, it is recognised by MS Windows as a game controller or joystick. Switches connected to any of the eight numbered connectors activate the “Fire” buttons, whereas switches connected to the four direction connectors will “move” the joystick.
Most switch software, including switch games and communication programs, support the JoyBox directly as a joystick device. Simply plug in the JoyBox and select ‘Joystick’ as the switch connection from within the software.
The JoyBox can be also be used as a mouse mover. Four switches (not included) control the movement of the mouse pointer, with additional switches for click, double click, or other functions.
You can change what happens when each switch is pressed, so switches can provide special functions. For example, you could have a switch controlling a music player’s play/pause button, perhaps with another switch to change track.
Switch Driver (from Sensory Software) allows you to configure each switch independently. Switch Driver will convert switch presses into other signals, such as a keypress or a mouse click.
For example, by default, Switch Driver generates the Space and Enter keys for switch inputs 1 and 2, but you can set Switch Driver up to work with any program that responds to keystrokes.
The Switch Driver software is compatible with all Windows operating systems from Windows 98 to Windows 7 32-bit and 64-bit.
Note that you do not need Switch Driver to use The Grid 2, and many other programs that work directly with the JoyBox.
The JoyBox can control games such as flight simulators and driving games that use a joystick or game controller as an input.
A simpler version exists with two switch inputs only in the Joy Cable 2. Click here for more info.
