    Please let me know if it's any good, I fancy one of those myself.

  4. Eddy - Will do. May be a long delivery, from experience.

    I have a Jog-It! pendant here, also from Kickstarter. I don't think that there are currently any plans to manufacture more, as they are not terribly profitable, and apparently wee rather time consuming to make. They are open source, and all the info needed to make them is available from the web page.

    For about the same price, an XBox controller is far more powerful and flexible.

    Just had a further look into this Xbox controller idea, there are 2 plugins here;

    And there are these on ebay;

    I use one of the wireless usb adapters as in your link, got the controller itself cheap when they updated the xbox os and you couldn't use spurious controllers. I don't remember seeing the shilling plugin when I installed mine, and I remember having issues with the 32eng... File. Still all works fine now

    Hi - Eddycurrent. I only just got round to fitting this pendant. Although a little flimsy in build quality/durability. I think if used with a little care it will be fine.
    Plugs straight into USB port. Set the XYZ(+) in the "pins and ports" hotkey column.This is simply a case of checking the relevant boxes and pressing the respective keys on the pendant. I automatically sets the axis movement to that key.
    IN short:- Does what it says on the box!
    For that price I can live with flimsy?

    Thanks for the feedback, sounds like I'll give it a try, seeing as I'm not one of those rough arsed mechanical types

  11. Well been using this all afternoon and, balanced against a keyboard. I would now, not like to be without it. For sure.
    Given the build caveats, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend for the money.

  12. Sorry meant to clarify for anyone with an interest.
    This IS NOT the JOGIT pendant.
    It is the *bay one from China
