I am in search of a unique set-up. Before I built something of my own, I figured I would ask.
I frequently go on test drives with multiple different vehicles to test camera systems in cars. To do this, I need to drive on curvy roads (with a manual transmission). In addition, I also have a laptop on the passenger seat recording the data. If something acts weird with the video I'm recording, I need to "mark" the frame on the computer (so I can refer back to it later) by hitting the spacebar twice.
Oh, did I mention I can only do this at night?
So, as you can see, this process is quite dangerous.
So what I would like to do is install a one button switch that I can attach/detach easily to the steering wheel of the car. I would like the switch to mimic the pressing of the spacebar so if I need to mark a frame in the video, I can just hit the switch without taking my hands off the steering wheel.
Does anything in the current market exist like that today? If not, what is the difficulty level of making something like that on my own?
Thanks in advance!
