I have some idea how to implement searching. If They make interface with few squares each square can contain 4 letters in each corner, last squares will contain digits. First square contain letters A, B, C and D. Second E, F, G, and H .....
Wheel can be used to move beetwen squares and four X buttons can be used to choose letters
So for example if you want to find ABBA in database all you have to do is to go to first square and press:
Left upper button = A
Right upper buton x2 = BB
and again Left upper button = A
That way we get string ABBA
there is 26 letters and 10 digits so 9 squares is needed (4 symbols in each square). You can easily move between each square with wheel and choose symbol you need using 4 buttons1 square:
C D2 square:
G H3 square:
K L4 square:
O P5 square:
S T6 square:
W X7 square:
1 28 square:
5 69 square:
.... and maybe 10 square with space, backspace, exit
So again if you want to find QUEEN:
Go to 5 sq. and press LU (left upper) button - Q
then to 6 sq. press LU button - U
then to 2 sq. and press LU twice - EE
and to 4 sq. and press RU (right upper) - N.
Then press middle button to accept.
Maybe it is not good idea (... and is better to wait for X7) but searching can be done this way and it can be quite easyEdited by mcr1 - 2/8/15 at 3:01pm
