    First you (probably) need an xtra like

    You've got a couple of options for controlling your 3D objects with something
    other than key codes or mouse location. There are input devices such as
    "keyboard emulators" which let you plug in switches (for instance) that read as
    keypresses inside Lingo. (Some people actually find old keyboards and hack them
    to get to the key switches.) The other more flexible way to go is to use a
    serial XTRA such as the SerialXtra or DirectComm's serial xtra, and feed data
    from a microcontroller board such as an Arduino thru your USB port into Lingo.
    You can program the board to send particular numbers based on what you have
    connected to it, such as potentiometers, switches, or other sensors. You should
    be able to web search some of these terms to help get you started. Have fun.
