The TM1680 is a smart TV remote control with a simple design for greater convenience and usability. The remote is designed to be as compact as possible for ease of manipulation. The ergonomic approach features a slight bent in the middle to fit the fingers’ angles. All elements that can hinder the user’s ability to grip the device comfortably are removed, resulting in a sleek, minimalist style. All the keys fall easily within the thumb’s range of motion, preventing the need for re-grip. The result is a compact, ergonomic shape intended to enhance user satisfaction with the functionality as well as its sleek esthetically appealing design.
