Non-release(s), august 2015, november 2015

IIRC @pichenettes wrote somewhere that he would not make a module with a display again, as it only caters to deep menus, and that he want to avoid this in the future. I think we can expect more Streams like navigation in the coming modules.


#22

I’d rather avoid designing modules so complex that they would require a display.

That’s just the same thing :slight_smile:

Not for now. All the other sketches from the past 2 years have been turned into actual modules, some of them launched in 3 months, some others around june/july.


#23

Plus I’m not sure OLED displays will last as long as an LED or LCD. Every device I have with them implements a screensaver.


#24

Love your ideas and where you were going with these


#25

This one kind of reminds me of Seek now from Cooper Traces love the mutate function!!


#26

Hooray for taking this approach!


#27

So we are looking at March for new toys? :grinning:


#28

Where in this thread have I stated that?


#29

I think I may have misread your “some of them released in 3 months” a few posts back. I read it as some of them will get released in 3 months. :yum:


#30

Oops. I shouldn’t have done that!


#31

Gotcha ! :grin:


#32

:wink:

It’s ok, I wont tell anyone if you don’t.


#33

Cool, but a display need not imply complexity.


#34

Alright, complexity is maybe not the right word here. Depth is not the right word either - some things in appearance simple can be made very deep just through the possibility of interaction with other modules.

Let me rephrase it then:

I’d rather avoid designing modules with a “parameters/physical controls” ratio so high that they would require a display.


#35

I can see where you are coming from, however Having to remember what different combinations of blinking colored lights mean what is perhaps less desirable. A little display to light your way can make your day.


#36

I’d rather avoid designing modules with a “parameters/physical controls” ratio so high that the user has to remember what different combinations of blinking colored lights mean.


#37

I do have to admit, that I rarely use the additional undocumented features on Rings just because of the blinking lights not exactly making sense to me, but they are very appealing when I do use them. It’s really interesting to see your approach evolving.
