    not on this version of the soap device – I don’t see why that wouldn’t be possible with different underlying hardware though.

    Nifty.  I will have to make one and try it out.

  4. Mike Hall, a guy who works at Microsoft, occasionally has nifty things on his blog. This one is no exception. I will have to try it out and see how it feels….
