Gesture-Controlled Trackpad Light Switch Concept Is Not Dim

The traditional light switch is a great invention. Cheap, reliable and simple to operate. But these days, when we engineer increasingly complex lighting setups with dimmer switches and central control panels, we need something a little more intuitive.

This concept is quite a radical rethink of lighting control, opting for an electronic, gesture controlled trackpad over mechanical switches. The device would ideally be setup to control multiple lights, either individually via a directional finger stroke, or altogether with a circular movement.

Apart from the expense of the components, I don’t see why this couldn’t work. In fact, put a decent programmer, a hardware hacker, a recent (damaged) MacBook and this concept in a room together and I’m sure it wouldn’t be long before a working model materializes.
