Pixl.js front-facing buttons

    These cases look nice but the problem I have is how to embed the Pixl into a larger panel. i.e. as an
    automotive display. How can can I bring the buttons forward from their current side placement?

    about the 3D printed cases here. I'm just bringing this out into a new thread.

    My initial reasoning was that normal 3x6 tactile switches wouldn't protrude enough to make a nice front-panel anyway. I think realistically there are 2 options:

    • Add proper front-panel buttons and wire them to pins on the Arduino headers. If you rename the pin variables - eg. global.BTN1=D1/etc. then things like Pixl.menu will work fine with the new buttons. There are some nice joystick-style connectors that'd work really nicely - needing only one hole to be cut in a front-panel.
    • 3D print/cut a frame and some 'rockers' that would go through a front-panel and turn a downwards movement into a sideways one.
