Inspired by "The Knob" from Frank Lumien (see https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2970774) I created a more evolved version of his Media Control Button.
The intention was to be able to mute the micorphone of any windows computer independently from the application running on it. No matter whether you're using MS Teams, Skype for Business, Zoom or any other Software to communicate. I found many remixes of "The Knob" but most of them did not provide feedback whether the mic was muted or not.
It's easy to explain why: Because they do not communicate bi-directional with the computer but behave as HID and thus emulate keyboard shortkeys.
Myute solves this issue by communcating via a virtual serial port with the computer. A C++ application then receives messages from the button, processes them and indicates the mute status. And if the microphone is muted, Myute gets a message abck from the computer and changes it's color.
