How It Works

Start by connecting your Spin and the devices or software that you want to control to the Jaxcore desktop server software:
Jaxcore Spin connected to a desktop computer, smart tv, and stereo
There are a total of 10 possible actions that Spin controllers can detect. Each action can be mapped to any function of the device being controlled, such as volume, play, pause, stop, and navigation.

8 possible actions spin involving, push button, and push knob
Jaxcore's intelligent control software can monitor your home theater equipment and/or media player and automatically switch control modes, greatly expanding the total capabilities of this versatile new controller.

Connects Directly to the Web

The Jaxcore browser extension enables your Spin to connect directly to web pages like a game controller (no third-party cloud services needed). Use your Spin to control web games, interfaces, and applications in a fluid new way that makes web pages come alive. Here you can see this Jaxcore.com website uses the Spin as a scrollwheel.

Fun and Easy to Program

Jaxcore software and API's are open-source. Create your own control scripts using simple JavaScript commands for fast, fluid control of nearly any kind of hardware, software, or web pages on the Internet.
