A helping hand: System lets you feel the beat

27.06.2012 Engineering : New Tangible Interfaces : Eunhee Jo

UK – Royal College of Art Innovation Design Engineering graduate Eunhee Jo has created New Tangible Interfaces, a home sound system that responds to hand gestures.

The interactive system responds to human touch, letting users control the volume, equalizer, fast forward and rewind functions with circular, sliding or probing hand movements.

‘The advantage of the tactile interface is that it enables people to experience a new level of tactility and flexibility in a 3D form,’ explains Eunhee Jo. ‘The design opens up a new wealth of possibilities for product-user interaction.’

Intuitive interfaces are a great way for consumers to feel more connected with household products. For more examples of objects that respond to gesture-based commands, see LS:N Global’s Intuitive Futures macrotrend.
