As you can see, the Palette is not your normal keyboard nor mouse. Instead is is a collection of buttons, dials and sliders which communicate via the MIDI standard and is intended to help you with programs like Adobe Premier Pro, Photoshop, or Capture One. The Palette can be rearranged however you like, magnets hold it together to ensure that signal can travel between the blocks in whatever arrangement you prefer. The core module, with the LCD screen, houses the USB connector to plug it into your system as well as the Atmel AT90USB1286 8-bit brains of the device. You can connect up to 18 modules due to the power delivery limitations of USB, or 32 if you can provide additional power. TechPowerUp found numerous uses for the device, drop to check it our and perhaps to be inspired.
"Palette is a startup that aims to elevate the current standard of human-computer interaction. Their modular controllers based off the MIDI standard use a combination of buttons, dials, and sliders to lower workflow time for content creators. The PaletteApp driver helps with built-in support for over 15 popular programs from Adobe and others, and profile support enables quick changes in functionality for individual modules."

There are just some things that need to be their own hardware control, such as a separate volume knob or the hardware sliders in this pretty damn cool product. Argh, I want it just because of how cool it looks, even though I have no use for it.
hhmm, just had a thought, wouldn’t it be cool if you could use one of those sliders as a sort of analog switch for zooming in with a sniper scope in game? anyway, very cool product indeed.
