e-thumb: Electronic Thumb-wheel Switch concept from Ideas Unlimited...

Eventually when made into product form, this prototype will be tiny electronic-thumb-wheel switch module that can be mounted on a panel. The device uses a 5X7 dot-matrix LED display. It uses EEPROM to store the chosen setting. Video below demonstrates how the switch mimics a mechanical thumb-wheel switch.

1. Industrial applications to replace mechanical thumb-wheel switches with bright and visible displays.
2. In-flight/In-Automobile (Commercial) entertainment system - can display currently chosen channel number etc. (Software can also be adapted to scroll additional text if required.)
3.Panel meters to display any slow changing parameters. (Including automotive).

For any further queries or general interest on this technology, e-mail us.
