The FM37 interface works on two levels; for configuration and browsing playlists, a normal “point and click” mode is used, while for music and videos, a new “gestural” mode recreates the ease and simplicity of analogue control. Draw a circle on the screen to adjust the volume; wipe the display from one side of the screen to the other and the FM37 will skip to the next track. These gestural motions are enriched by a “ghost effect” – the path traced by the finger leaves a fading “trail” on the screen. Just three bold colors – black, white and red – and a 2D iconographic style further enhance the clarity and response of the FM37’s interaction.
