I think a nice display would be nice. An output display. just visual. No controll. A scrolling display of your numbers. One wire, nice lookng box. Backlit. One thing that is making not want to buy this controller is the display.(the only thing)
I plan on ditching my RKL, or saving it for a dif project for this thing. I like the abiblty to do almost anything.

I have been thinking about this as well. How much would you be willing to pay for a 3 or 4 in display? Would you pay more for touchscreen?

I think a touch screen is a lil much. I just want a nice lil display without alot of wires sticking out of it.

I think just an auxilary display would be great. One that's simple and clean. I could then hide the main controller.

you could setup an iPod touch as an external display and just leave the app running. You can find used ones pretty cheap.

I'll the question again. How much would you be willing to pay for a 3 or 4 inch display? I have been thinking about developing one and wonder if it would sell. This also assumes I would not be taking away from anything Roberto has planned.

Well, I do have something in the works but nothing even close to production yet.
I'd love to see what you come up with, if you do decide to move forward with your plans.
I've made a 1st rev. prototype and started working on creating the libraries, but I halted the project because I've been devoted to creating a new portal interface that I'm sure everyone is going to like :)
There are some minor revisions I need to do, but this is my very first prototype:

How would you start to make an iPAD interface. Where can I find info on how to retrieve data from the RA via wifly?

Could Keynote for iPad be used to build an interface?

keynote could be used, the RA just outputs an xml page. go to the /r99 page of your controller and you will see it there. All you need is something to parse the XML.
