Cool new control panel possibility

This could be great for a control panel. Each section has 4 way rocker control. So you could imagine each one could control a light or appliance with individual brightness control, etc... There is just something nice about tactile feedback too that you dont get with a touchscreen.

Looks cool, but I'm pissed that the optimus is no longer using OLEDs. Now they've decided to make the keys 32*32 resolution (and who knows what kind of colour depth). grrrrr what a publicity stunt.

Sounds to me like a touchscreen would be better; this device is just an LCD screen with a bunch of plastic buttons strapped to the top. Guess some might enjoy this gadget.
