Lean machine: Device Peels back the tv layers

08.03.2011 Future Media Landscapes

San Francisco – Industrial designer Yves Béhar, of design studio Fuseproject, has unveiled Peel, a device that cuts out channel surfing when watching tv.

An iPhone app connects the device to wifi. The user just has to inform Peel which programmes are of interest and the device will tell him or her what is on television. It automatically learns the typical programming the user watches, and filters out the rest. To demonstrate that it is ‘peeling away’ unnecessary information, the device comes in fruit-shaped forms, such as pear, apple or orange.

As LS:N Global explores as part of our Spring Trend Briefing, intuitive design will respond to consumers’ emotions, creating a leaner experience.
