"I have found a review on Amazon that says it is Plug-and-Play and implies that it 'just works'. Although I have it plugged into a Windows 10 laptop which recognises it correctly but doesn't give me any clues other than it is successfully configured using a generic driver utilising input.inf which is a start but not very helpful."

Amazon reviews are the most gamed reviews on the planet, and are generally worthless when it comes to anything technical. Plug and Play could mean many things, depending on who is doing what with whatever. I agree with what stevieb has said, this is a lot easier with off the shelf microcontrollers, and you can bet that someone has already done exactly what you want, in a way that is fairly easy to adapt or build upon (like the methods I previously linked to). If you want to jump in and get your hands dirty with rolling your own, this is of course fine, but don't use Amazon reviews as a substitute for actual research, and expect to have to do a lot of that, research.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
