ori Remote / Television remote control

ori Remote
ori Remote

TV remote controls are amongst the most confusing and hard to use products around. ori Remote is a redesign of the conventional remote control drawing inspiration from a simple compass. ori Remote offers an inclusive and intuitive way of controlling your TV. Using a simple orientation system for choosing the most popular function and a touch sensitive tracker pad for manipulating them.

The four sides of the controller represent the functions. Orientate the controller like a compass to access the functions. By dragging a finger over the track pad and tapping it the function is changed. The controller vibrates to confirm.
