Ergonomic Key Pad for Digital Artists & Creators

Sat Mar 25 09:20:53 GMT 2017 - 9:20 AM

Hey Hyncharas, that'd be great!

I've been pondering the design a little more, and I find the G1 and G7 buttons a bit too much of a stretch; they need to be brought inwards slightly, and then maybe an additional row of 5 buttons placed above those, to achieve a loose, tapering diamond shape, which makes a lot of sense from an ergonomic standpoint. The G20 & 22 are positioned very comfortably. The strong indents on G10, 11 & 12 helps to navigate back to default position amongst the other flat-surfaced keys.

I'm wondering if it would be possible to increase the height of the touch strip and incorporate saturation as well as brightness; making it a square or triangle shape. I get the feeling that having two individual touch strips - one for value, and one for saturation - would turn out far less buggy, and be easier to create smooth drivers for; as it'd be mapping two things individually on a single line from 0-100%. A triangle or square would be 3 or 4 edges, and might require 3-4 sets of 0-100% depending on how that technology actually works... and then having to account for everything in between those edges, which might be a little too ambitious.

However, I'm terrible at maths, and I don't do programming; so if I'm wrong, and a square or triangular touch pad can easily function using only two 0-100% values, then incorporating Saturation/Brightness in a single touch strip would be very comfortable, efficient and certainly wow a lot of people.

On the off chance that the G13 had two simple sticks (one adjustable, and one that in a flash snaps to the directional Hue), and a touch strip (like those on the Cintiq 24HD), it would be unbelievably effective dissertation proposal help and radically enhance work process. The general position of the upper keys on the G13 is extremely agreeable, so I'd think about that design and adjust it to be more reasonable.

ELIMINATE built-in microphones and cameras

Another minor point to make is for 'inexpensive' notebooks and tablets, where the overwhelming tendency is to solder in the lamest, blindest, cameras and most hard-of-hearing microphones, to cut cust.

A USB-C device can be as lean (poor ISP, or penniless buyer) or as ridiculous (3D 4K, ultra-noise reducing mikes with wind covers, whatever), or just a plastic snap-on that covers the place where it 'would go', if you even wanted it.  

Being USB-C, you could ebven turn the camera and microphones 180 degrees,   Making your notebook into a camera AND tripod for shooting creatively with an HD camera.


External RAM slot on laptops

Fri Mar 17 15:17:10 GMT 2017 - Mar 17, 2017

I thought I'd heard of everything in the PC world, until I read your idea and had to research it!

RAM slots are so close to the CPU because they need the shortest, most direct path for when the Cache is depleted; allowing the system to dip into the RAM's memory as an extension, before using the paging file.  For this reason, therefore, I don't think Dell would install an external RAM slot into any of their laptops, unless an unprecedented number of users wanted it.

However, there are tutorials online to use a Flash Drive's space as Virtual RAM - you may want to read those.

AlienFX support on Battlefield 1

I wish I could help in this matter; unfortunately IdeaStorm's purpose is to suggest new harware and service concepts to Dell, not colours schemes for AlienFX...

I suggest you register on Alienware Arena's Forums, whose team may be of better help, located here.

ELIMINATE built-in microphones and cameras

I totally agree with this - as much as internal webcams and microphones have improved in recent years, they will never compare to an external device, particularly with Intel's RealSense technology now becoming more prominent.

As Dell is soon to launch a commercial AR headset, and a graphics tablet, offering a camera and microphone that competes with Razer's "Stargazer" and "Seiren" products, respectively, would be a huge deal.
