This looks amazing - Star Trek LCARS inspired home automation panel. He used EIB/KNX (http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/EIB (http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/EIB)) for his home automation.

This guy earned lots of geek points in my book :)

Hey,
Thanks for the complement.
I have been working on an off on the skin for about a year and a half now. The UI 1 is actually a little cooler. I have some screen shots of it on the developers forum.

I am actually still working on perfecting it as over time I keep seeing places that it could improve. Unfortunately I work very slowly due to time constraints.

Here is a demo of the UI1. I am getting very close to finishing it.

Looking good, Dude, but the sound doesn't seem to match up. Your lips are moving, but no commentry! Just the Star Wars theme :) I take it that is not deliberate?

Actually yes it was deliberate.. I felt it best if I just didn't speak.

And that's the Star Trek TNG theme there.

Oh!

Yes, sorry, wrong theme!

It was just that your lips were moving so it looks like your are explaining it.... ;)

Looks cool though! Nice house too :D
