== [feature] [howTo] getUserMedia from plug n play USB devices ==
I wanted to know if it is possible to use any different USB device other than camera or microphone as user input. A gaming joystick, like a standard xbox controller for PC is what I have in mind - to transmit its button pressing and joystick movements in real-time over the RTC data channel to a remote client using the webRTC standard, in sync with the video. If there is any other method, please advise. Someone also suggested building an Electron app along with writing Javascript APIs for the USB device drivers but it seems to be a lot of work.

I asked about this in a previous crowdcast and Daniel suggested to put up an issue here for everyone's input. Thanks.
