  1. Hi, nice idea! I just thought, that the touchpad could also display the room dimensions properly (like where are the stairs, doors and windows, is the room really a square etc.) and be mounted not straight vertically, but tilted. This would make it easier for users to map the displayed concept of the room to the real room.

    Does the above touch switch exist? If so I’d like information on how to purchase and or have them custom made.

    Thank you

    Nice idea! But there is on inconsistency, I think: if you drag toward the source to switch it on, how to switch it of? Most intuitive would be to drag away from the light source, but you indicated it as switching the lights in the background.

    I would also suggest to use it not only for switching on and off, but also for dimming. Would be nice to see such devices on day in RL.
