Next-generation remote control, flat-screen TV and matching GUI (BA Project)
My bachelor project is centred around a proposal for an universal remote control for Bang & Olufsen named Beo7. The Beo7 is designed to function with the increasing number of ‘smart TVs’, which include web browsing, content searching and handling of multiple types of media.
The look of the Beo7 challenges the traditional design language of B&O by combining sculptural shapes and asymmetry, with the well known geometric lines. One of the unusual and characteristic features of the Beo7 design, are the two spherical caps underneath the remote, which serves as ergonomic holding points.
To accompany the Beo7 is the BeoVision 12 ‘CinemaScope’ TV. It features a startling organically shaped B&O logo plate, along with an intuitive user interface, which among other things can be controlled by hand gestures.
