Touch Panel for on and off / Restart and fan controls

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have had this idea since Robert Space Industries made a desktop station with this built-in computer case, this idea has been with me for a year now, and I wish it became a thing.... Computer buttons are starting to become super boring, I have seen people have keys to turn on their pc's but, why stop there? Why not just use a nuclear reactor control board to start a computer at that point... But no, I wanna see something better, something stylish, a touch panel for on and off with restart and fan speeds..... This would make for a good idea in general, just wondering why no one wants this? I want it, sadly I cannot find a single company that could do this.... since no one has responded back to me with this type of idea.... so yeah, just wanted to share this with Linus, hopefully you will catch on to this and make a video about it, because this is a super interesting thing, which could also make touch screens more used on a daily basis, not that touch screens are used on a daily basis, I mean smart phones has it, but smart phones are not that great, pc is where it's at :D

I'll take a nice mechanical button over a capacitive pretty much any day but I could see how it would be quite sleek to have a no buttons front panel I guess


I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally)...

Builds:

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee!

 

The original LAN PC build log! (Old, dead and replaced by The Toaster Project & 5.0)

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016

I do believe such panels did exist back in the day that slotted right into the 5.25" DVD drive bays. 

 

Edit: Here are some examples. Now these only controlled fan speeds because well... what case didn't already have a power button? Would've been redundant.

No power on button? I would like to see a standard issues case with this stuff, power on / off / restart on the top and fan control where you would expect it, I got a Silent Base 600 from Be Quiet, so yeah :P To put this on my case I would have to cut up the plastic on top and remove the buttons that are on it, modifying it completely to fit a touche panel on the top of my pc, also ruining the panel I buy in a realistic view...

 

EDIT #1 : I would also have to recode the touche panel to do what I want it to do, which is quiet alot of work for one guy. Even worse, I do not know how to code circuits at all, so there is that
