Emotional air conditioner UX

Discipline: Communication

Discipline: Communication

This air conditioner uses the ambient lighting hidden within the product as the main method of conveying information. It delivers the information necessary for users implicitly yet vividly by combining the color and shape of lighting, motion and other main information.
For example, the cooling mode expresses the lighting as breathing, the humidification mode as water droplets becoming smaller and smaller, and the purifying mode depicts the direction of vacuumed particles. Overall, the lighting display uses images to impart information in a way that is imaginative and easy to understand.
