    Hi,
    I spent almost all day trying to figure out how to capture a click
    from this button:

    http://www.dreamcheeky.com/big-red-button

    I tried libusb, PyUSB, HIDAPI and probably a couple other things. No
    luck. My understanding is that libusb won't allow me to get at the
    interface and the example I found using PyUSB to read a magnetic card
    reader errors with a segmentation fault in the libusb library.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction? I looked the OS X I/O Kit
    at developer.apple.com, but it seems really confusing and over kill.
    I have the vendor ID and product ID, it seems like it would be really
    simple to read when the button is clicked.

    Any thoughts?
