Tiles that are tappable like buttons/lights/routines can only be tapped.
But what if we allow them to be swiped to trigger? Sometimes buttons near the edge of the screen may be accidentally tapped or tapped in the pocket of your mobile device. Swiping may prevent that.
This leads to another idea. Combining multiple tiles to fit in the same x y coordinate but differ in the z level. They can swipe up down left or right. To trigger the tile.
This could be useful for mobile defices that have limited screen real estate.
My idea for a UI would look like stacked scrabble tiles with the edges visible. If the tile behind is capable of changing states they would be slightly visible.
Some language keyboards do something like this. The iOS Japanese kana keyboard has a 3x3 keyboard
You can tap the あ to insert a あ or you can swipe あ left to get い
Imagine using this for different lighting scenes. You’d be able to include a lot without taking too much space.
Anyone think this is a interesting idea?
