Max,

Sorry, currently I've been forced into management and cautioned not to think.  Maybe when I'm back to being an engineer, I'll be allowed to think again.

I feel your pain LOL

Not that there's anything wrong with managers per se -- some of my best friends are managers -- it's just that you wouldn't want your daughter to marry one LOL

@Max, I'll keep that in mind, but not for a long time.

@Max, let me clarify. The time will probably come when I need to remember that, but not for a long time.

Candy Crush didn't make your list? Or is it too insipid to even call it a game?

I've heard the name, but never looked at it -- I don't really know what it is, but from the tidbits I've heard I don;t thhink it's for me.

Is this what they taught you at "How to be a manager" school -- ruling through fear and intimidation? LOL

Haven't tried any of these yet but the Room is definitely something I've had my eye on for some time.

I'd add these to the list:
Best Tower Defense Game – Kingdom Rush

Best Physics Based Puzzle – Where's My Water

Best RPG  - Angry Birds Epic

I think you will love it -- also, I cannot recommend Machinarium and Momument Valley highly enough -- I will be downloading "Where's My Water" when I get home this evening LOL

Display Solution AG introduced Evervision Electronics Europe's new IPCT (Improved Projected Capacitive Touchpanel) Evaluation Tool, which allows users to adjust the key parameter in order to integrate the PCAP Panel into the application.

The adjustment tool comes with a USB Bridge Board controlling the IPCT from a notebook via the USB and a Software which can be easily installed and operated with its intuitive interface.

It offers users the ability to change the values for Threshold, Gain, Offset X and Offset Y. If a cover glass is required, the IPCT can have the function as a touch sensor and this adaption can be realized by adjusting the parameters. Also the use of gloves is possible using this adjustment procedure.

The X / Y parameter adjustment can become necessary when using the cover glass. The weaker touch signals close to the edges leads to the reduction of active area of the IPCT. The X / Y offset compensates for this phenomenon in order to obtain the full active area again.
