The ThinkGear Connector (TGC) runs as a background process on your computer and is responsible for directing headset data from the serial port to an open network socket. It is available on both Windows and OS X. Any language or framework that contains a socket library should be able to communicate with it. TGC is an ideal option for developers working in frameworks like Adobe Flash.
- Windows and OS X executables
- Uses socket APIs
- Ideal for scripting languages like Flash / Python / Ruby
Quick Start Guide to Using the TGC
