    touvh screen in double gang???

    without costing a small fortune, is there a wifi "tablet" running android that fits in a double gang light switch enclosure?

    i want to replace the light switches in a few rooms with tablets running hstouch on it, wil be used for lights in that room and a whole load more.

    my goal is to not have loads of "extra" things hanging on the walls so replacing the light switches seems the most practical place

    a double gang box is quite small, i just mounted an arduino in one and it was a bit of a job getting it all in there.

    maybe something like this would work:

    just an idea.

      Seems like you could get older iPods Touches and manufacture something to fit.

        That's probably your best best Zac. I've never seen an Android tablet that small, and if you do find one it would probably have a cheap resistive touchscreen. With something that small a capacitive touchscreen is pretty much a necessity unless you're going to have only a couple of large buttons on screen at once. (think of all the old single gang audio controllers with touchscreens - they were only good if you had no more than a couple of buttons.)
