OS8 feature request?

Any chance of revisiting lateral motion detection? ie moving the blade on a flat plane rather than swinging? I remember it was investigated previously but not sure it was taken further?

I think this would really add more control to the sound and movement.

There is always a chance, however, it’s pretty low on my list of things to do. Part of that is because I don’t know if it’s even possible to make it work well.

Of course, someone else could always do it. :slight_smile:


I wish I could… :frowning:

Well, no one else has done it with any other board. Translation would be like a gigaflex for Proffie.

I sure would be on board to test it :slight_smile:

Isn’t Ferndando’s force push thing triggered with lateral motion? Couldn’t we just fine tune that, and trigger the smoothswing algorithm? I don’t know, just a thought. Fernando has incorporated so much stuff, we might as well make use of it.

As for me, I have no feature requests per se, outside of Deep Sleep. I think that a hibernation mode is the only thing missing from proffie. Maybe more OLED capabilities? But I’m not even sure what we need there, except for maybe expanded blaster OLED functions? I think Brian Conner was working on that.
