Hey... This is a place holder for now, but I have a message from Bill Gates for you :-D

One layer had to be on top of the image... This one is correct ;-)

I like the idea. I just hope we could get a little better resolution when we are flying through hyperspace! Well done and very fun!

Sweet Jebus! I hope we aren't still dealing with Windows by the time we need a Hyper Space Curve Calculator!

The image is great and the map is nice, but the clipped picture of the pen doesn't fit the style. I suggest you drawing the pen using the same techniques you used for the tablet. I think that would unify the image a bit more, as it is the pen kind of sticks out as something "real" pasted onto a bunch of stuff that is "unreal."

Thanks for your comments. Added the new pen, which was made with illustrator and then embossed with PS. Tell me what you think of it.

No chance of having a couple of buttons on the tablet?

You don't need no stinking buttons!

Afterall, my GPS unit has no buttons (aside from the On/Off button), the iPhone has no buttons, etc.

But I do agree in part with RAVS, even those devices still have on screen buttons to access menus, Zoom/UnZoom, etc...

Here is a tut (http://www.lyzrdstomp.com/tutorial_keypad/) if you are interested.

Last modifications before deadline...

Added a on/off button made using the tut RobA linked to, a menu bar at the top of the screen, and a zoom tool at the bottom... Think it fits pretty well !

I like!

I also like that in the future they are still using a Window's 98 Operating system. Wonder how many hyperspace collisions happened because it crashed :P

This is looking really beautiful, I love the button and the Lyzard Stomp website Rob linked taught me more about photoshop than anything before or since. But just two small crits - the light source on the tablet and pen is coming from the opposite direction to that of the bevel on the tablet. Should be pretty easy to fix. The other one (which is very small - in fact one pixel small - is that you have a tiny amount of white fringe between the tablet and the screen, also should be easy to get rid of.

Beautiful entry. I love it. I feel that I can just pick up the tablet and start using it.
