A Rotary Encoder integrated with a multi-line LCD display can provide a method of data entry for your application. The example referenced below uses a Sparkfun rotary encoder and a Sparkfun 2-line x 16 character serial LCD, along with a state machine, to input multiple data values into an example sketch.

COM-10596 Rotary Encoder - Illuminated (Red/Green) $ 2.95 BOB-10954 Rotary Encoder Breakout - Illuminated (Red/Green) $3.95 COM-10597 Clear Plastic Knob $.95 LCD-09396 Serial Enabled 16x2 LCD - Yellow on Blue 5V $24.95 PRT-00116 Break Away Headers - Straight $1.50

I hope this is of value to your next project.
