I have a special love of analog devices and their possible representation in UI design. The challenge is to inject affordance into such a representation: does the element itself speak to its usage? what is the proper balance between simulation, abstraction, affordance, usability and aesthetics?

Whatever, man - I'd happily replace my entire site with just this switch for people to flick on and off.
hahaha Rob, yeah this is definitely amazing piece! :)
I agree with Rob.
Thanks! I'm honored that you like it. Do you think that I should offer it in different colors, perhaps in a layered PSD, for download?
This is the best switch I have seen. Keep posting amazing analog stuff.
This is amazing! I wanted to feel the surface with my fingers...
Wow! wow! ehm ... wow!
This is epic man, Dope debut Welcome to Dribbble. I wouldn't say no if you put it out as a downloadable .psd :p Just saying.
@Siddharth Arun I wanted to feel the surface with my tongue! Absolutely stunning.
Freaking amazing lighting.
Amazing work! and rly great debut! Welcome @Dribbble :)
I totally get what your saying, but I'd just rather play with it.
Nice start! :)
Nom nom nom!!!
Download would be great! :D
Even my real power-button doesn't look this awesome :3
Looks great. The "on" version especially. Only critique would be that the "off" setting is a little hard to make out. I'm not sure if I saw it on it's own I could tell what it was.
Great piece of craftsmanship, though to me, it feels like these eye-candy shots only make sense in the context of dribbble. I imagine it being quite challenging to use them anywhere. Maybe an iPhone app that consists of only this switch, and nothing else :)
Nice! Watch this shot reaching the first page! :D
Thank you all very much for the warm welcome - especially the "I want to lick..." comments ;)
Cemre, I completely understand what you're saying. I think that it's far more challenging to use these elements in context. And, I'm wondering if my own would actually be lacking if it were in a formal, fully-realized UI. Good food for thought, sir.
