WebHID (Human Interface Device)

The web platform already supports many types of devices that use the HID protocol, including mice, keyboards, touchscreens, and gamepads. However, there are many other HID devices that are inaccessible to the web. The WebHID API enables web applications to request access to HID devices, send and receive HID reports, and retrieve information about the report descriptor.
