Well sure, the library source code is available - you could implement your own virtual Phidgets. This would be pretty difficult to do well without a lot of insider info about how the library works.

Thanks Patrick.

I'm surprised that there hasn't more interest in this over the years (judging by these forums), just the odd query that seemed to relate.

Maybe an easy-ish alternative would be a public server which has a number of Phidgets connected, and to which one could connect?

At least for input-only devices, there might not be any contention problem. And perhaps for outputs, users could be rationed by a queuing system or some such.

Is this something you might consider providing, if more folk were interested?

Best,
Jim

This is something that's been discussed, we just have not had time to implement it.
