comment Why is the accelerator pedal different
Chris, careful with phrasings such as "right foot", since that varies by country. In the US for example the layout is such that it would be the left foot that has trouble pushing the accelerator.

comment What's a good scroll bar equivalent for a spiral script?
Roger, Any more detail about how this would work? It seems to me that the radial movement is limited, making it poor for fine tuning. Further should the radial movement not also inherently cause rotation, since the coarse movement is continuous and not discrete? Is the circular portion restrained to being on the spiral path of the chapter markers, like both examples are? etc...

comment How can a TV Remote's UX be improved?
As for a good UI, have the most common actions not on the remote appear when you push "ok" when watching tv, with the picture shrinking slightly to compensate. Make this a fast but smooth transition. The Main picture would be a "button" that is highlighted by default, so one can quickly undo an accidential press. Otherwise, navigate to the option you want. Less common options may require entering the full menu. This could also be combined with wii-style pointing (an onscreen cursor when not in the main tv watching mode) as an option.

While that design would pretty much work, it is not quite optimal for say a DVR, where play/pause, jump forward, and jump back are also extremely common operations, and are time critical.
