pOp Retro is a new custom touch panel theme unlike any other.







Many touch panel designs goes with a design approach that is, less buttons are the best for a touch panel design. But, if your touch panel design has only four buttons on the main screen, why should the client pay hundreds of thousands of dollars to be able to do four things ? pORetro provides the best user experience and most efficient design to operate a global system. pORetro is a custom design that provides more flexibility than a standard touch panel design.

One of the design goals of pORetro was to create a design that would allow the client to control everything and give the client the ability to change the layout of the design.This touch panel design had to also be easy to use and create a great user experience. From the reviews with the client this objective was achieved!

There are 10,000 different ways to use pOp Retro but only one great user experience.

The Reviews

Looks really good, perfect!

Looks much better with the changes, I like it!

Great feedback on the list buttons…I’ve never seen that before.

Controlling all of the lighting from the touch panel is extremely easy to use. We will be using the lighting controls on the touch panels more than the actual lighting keypads.

pORetro is a classic touch panel design with a modern twist.

 About the videos:

All of the demo videos from pOp Retro (Metro Tile & Meadow 2.0) are from the screen recording of a real touch panel. The videos are from a web-based touch panel design and / or an iPad touch panel design. For the iPad touch panel designs I use Reflector (Airplay) to record the videos. None of the custom touch panel themes are done with an emulation.

All designs are from an actual (real) touch panel design. The demo videos shows exactly how the design from pOp Retro and other custom designs works.
