The new X10 controller on our dresser has a nice lid over the buttons. Unfortunately, the lid lacks any affordance to raise it: smooth edges all around, slick surface, no notches or bumps.
The obvious, albeit ugly, solution: add some black and very grippy rubber strips to the front and side edges of the lid. Now one finger suffices…
Puzzle: how did the designers expect us to lift the lid?
