The Optical Finger Navigation (OFN) Module can add a unique human interface component to your BASIC Stamp or Propeller projects. OFN Modules are quickly becoming popular as user input devices in many smart phones as a replacement for trackballs, which are subject to mechanical wear and tear.
OFN technology is very similar to the technology used in optical mice, and movement across the sensor can be read by any microcontroller using I2C communication.
