The Raspberry Pi can power all kinds of great projects, but building an interface to actually interact with those projects is a chore. DIYer Toby Kurien decided to implement the Star Trek LCARS interface into his Pi projects.
The basic idea here is to build the LCARS interface with Python so it can be easily applied to any touch screen project you might be working on. In this case, it's used for a home automation system, but really you can modify it to work with any type of control panel you might need.
If you're not a fan of the LCARS interface, you can simply take the assets and swap them out with whatever you prefer, just using Kurien's project as the backbone for your own. However you decide to proceed, head over to GitHub for everything you need.
