I have the impression it relates to the Amiga 500 in some way, and by extension, may have something to do with the MiniMigs that they sold before. We will all know soon enough though

Boing demo + 500 = classic emulation of some sort...

Minimig 2?

UAE in Sam440's FPGA? (kinda unlikely I think)

Its the boing ball animation ported from A500 to Sam, without flicker :P

Or you get 500 boing ball stickers to put all over your house, if you buy Sam.

Last but you least. If you place 500 boing ball stickers around town, you will get 2% disscount on Sam :P

I've seen a lot of stupid ideas on where to go with the wedge designs, but yours was actually good. Should be possible to hack it up at home, even.

Is there any touch screen support in AOS? Mice and touch pads are relative position devices, touch screens and graphics tablets are absolute position devices. I know there's a wacom driver for Amiga, but could that be extended to support also serial and/or USB touch screen devices?

What hardware is needed?

Some people don't want touchscreen, but laid down flat or preferably at a slight angle like your idea there would work very well as a strain relief for people who use the mouse a lot otherwise. And most importantly, it would look awesome.

@AliveMOon 

Nice drawings, nice work but ....





big, bulky, impractical aside from AmigaOS and most applications on old and new Amigas are not designed for touch screen control.

Well I'm telling again and again that you will need tablett applications for a tablet pc, if not people would not buy the iPad, they would have bought Windows tabletts that are available for years.


BTW.:

It's strange seeing people speculating ACube will make an all in one device, they never had the intention of selling all in one computers before.

I do not see why I should everything miniaturized?
The LW3D was seen on a square 50x50 mm
full dimension 400x350x70 mm, with a desktop computer is irrelevant in aerodynamics :)
however, very comfortable, large display and lots of comfortable space for expansion.
I think so.

I think most of it works.

@AliveMOon

What you might think about with your designs are perhaps a Cradle or Dock for existing iPads & other tablets that can be set down on this. What do you think?

It is planned that I looked around in ACube and some other page, what parts are available, relatively cheap.
Each has made ​​a bounding box and arranged.
I drew around the case. So, I think is possible.
I was thinking, Acube simply can compose complete product, things worth secrecy.


Individual components could also be refined, they could probably even more beautiful together.

I do not know well in English, so I draw:)
I am sorry :)
