Web Interface of the Dalek

So… controlling the Dalek over the web.

I decided that the target device was to be a Tesco HUDL2, so the layout was to fit on that size screen without scrolling.

It decided it would need a virtual key pad,  enough to give basic control and some spare buttons, and that I would need a feed from the camera.

So, a little bit of design fettling, image searching and pissing about, I came up with this control panel (caution: may include Dalek POV of beardy halfwit):

Obviously its not perfect (the wonky looking buttons are a design choice to reflect the general wonkiness of the whole thing though) and spaces have been left for other bits, but it will do for now.

I’ll put up the code behind it once i’m finished and happy with it (which might me another year or three). Ask me for it and I might send it you though…
