Ive been getting a lot of feedback thanks to HAD. Some include…
Use RF recievers on devices and a transmitter on the remote.
Use uGFX for display control.
Use a piezo for feedback (clicks) Accelerometer for wake up and sleep
Vacuform an enclosure
Let me tackle 2 of those with a response here.
RF reciever and transmitter..
This would not only raise complexity but also drive the price up as I would have to make seperate pcbs for each device with their own mcu and reciever and then power each. So seems out of the question right now.
This is overcomplex for a simple remote with no rtos. Its way to much. Not to mention I would have to basically make a bsp (board support package) to drive the display. Why change what works ? 🙂
The other feedback is still on the table and ill play with the ideas.
Thank You everyone. Please feel free to comment more.
