Soul media remote

Student project

The need to control a wide variety of content, pulls remote designs into large overwhelming button pads or impractical touchscreens.

Boxmote is a consequence of pointing the perfect balance between digital and analog experiences, to reach a simple, catching and powerful device.

The design strategy features a touchscreen that brings flexibility to match different needs; a textured transparent housing, whose relief sets a fixed use-pattern and a haptic guide for the user; and a lights-set that highlights the media by changing according to the user and content displayed.

The result is a remote that with only 2 physical buttons, lets the user control its whole media under any condition.
