The six-channel Micro Maestro is a serial servo controller with a native USB interface and internal scripting control. It includes 0.25μs resolution with built-in speed and acceleration control, a general I/O controller (e.g. to interface with a sensor or ESC via your USB port), and header pins.

To read more about how Zock uses this extension, including in combination with his Oculus Rift extension, see:
