Just a quick word to say that I'm of the ones who'd really like a microphone object.
Why? For recording sound and detect if the mic hears sound at the moment.
No need for a voice recognition system, I know you must work for the secret services to have a good one. Just a microphone object, that also detects if there is sound, or not (and maybe detecting if there is huge noise, low sound, or nothing.)
Would be REALLY useful.
And I think about another very useful thing for a while. It's an explorer object. It could be an instance of the Windows Explorer. Would be useful for - inter alia - saving files, or savegames where the user wants to, or to select a file to play/view/modify/open.
Just ideas like that. Is there anybody else who would like to have those objects too?
