REMOTE CONTROL MASK / Packaging

REMOTE CONTROL MASK
REMOTE CONTROL MASK

Problem:
Pensioners prefer simplicity, especially when it comes to electronics. Modern televisions and cable providers often have infuriatingly complex remote-controls. Even universal remotes can be are overly complicated for users.
Solution:
Hide the complexity. Our mask covers the button face of universal remotes and only exposes 6 buttons, listed below. The removable mask is especially helpful in countries such as China where it is common for 3 generations to live in the same house.
For example, when grandparents require the remote, the mask simplfies their choices. When other generations need it, they can find greater functionality.
