Idea was to write an app for tablet to act as a Google TV remote control
- with better usability especially for impaired persons
- with haptic feedback
-> use anymote protocol or netty
-> have an additional app on the tv acting as server and second display for display of information.
With a mixed team of beginning and more experienced android developers it was too much work for the limited amount of time.
- Implementing a UI with a non-rectangular layout elements (triangle / polygon shaped buttons) requires writing custom ui components, which is a significant effort.
- Limited number of Sony Google TVs to play with
- The developer's personal Nexus 7 Tablets don't provide haptic feedback
