    if you hack this up you may be able to fab up a nice interface with some momentary buttons behind the remote buttons:

    I know you're wanting wired, but this remote uses a lithium battery, which should last a very long time and is worth taking a look at. Seems to have an 8-way touchpad mouse in the center (with left/right buttons), and can customize all others. Even has a shutdown button.

    Quick Info:

    to me, the ultimate media control would be something like the space navigator, & some extra buttons around it, all placed erogonomicly friendly & at your fingertips... kinda the way the factory is going with controls really, like benz & bmw... of course the cosmetics of this would be entirely up to you, but seeing your attention to detail you should be fine

    Heya

    I know you were looking for something with buttons but the touchpad I'm using works really great with StreetDeck. All of StreetDecks gesture commands can be done on touch pad pause, stop, play, track forward/ track back, music, video, nav etc.

    Depending on how you configure StreetDeck the far right hand side of touch pad can be used to scroll up/down very quickly or for a volume control and the upper right hand corner emulates right click. Since installing the usb touch pad (from newegg of course) I haven't touched my screen other than for dusting.

    Thanks for all of the feedback guys. If it were just me in the car using it, I would go with a touch pad in a heart beat...however, this is strictly for judging purposes and as such, I need to make it as simple and fool proof as possible...thus the reason I am looking for buttons.

    Unfortunately, when I only have a few seconds to show the judge how to use the car I need to make it quick and simple.

    Though the ideas posted are all really cool and well executed!

    how about qprox? that is on my list of eventual mods and could be implimented into a panel that would be quick and easy to understand/use. depends on how flashy you want to get though.

    I think the easiet way to fabricate som buttons without re-inventing the wheel is to hack something up from something else and just mold it in. For example, an old home deck CD player.

    1) Find a cd player (home or car) that has buttons that look like your desired size and look.
    2) Take the circuit board out, wire directly to the buttons with either a USB gamepad controller or a keyboard controller like I listed.
    3) program your desired functions/keystrokes with the software
    4) Fabricate/mold the buttons into your dash/center console.

    Thanks to you listing the fusion brain, I think that will work for me for wiring directly to my stock controls and still keep it in tact without destroying anything.
