Modern looking knobs?

    I am looking for modern looking knobs for a control panel application
    with a panel-mounted shaft encoder for input. So far every knob I've
    seen looks like it was either designed to go in a bomber aircraft or
    dates back to 1970's designs. Can someone point me in the direction
    of a supplier that might offer interesting modern-looking
    alternatives?

    Thanks,

    -Martin

    Those look like just about everything I've every seen, but you
    might ask on rec.audio.pro, or search it through Google Groups for
    knob/knobs, I recall there was some knob makers that target the mixer
    market where there are large arrays of color-coordinated knobs.

    I remember the "round bar" with the pointer on it, that's a true
    classic knob design I seem to recall from crystal radios. Why not just
    give in and go for a retro look? :)

    Well. We are going to go with touch-sensor based scroll wheels (like
    the iPod). It might work out better.

    Thanks,

    LOL!, I almost suggested those touch rings...
    they'll be cheaper than pots soon.

    Bye.
