‘peel’ by yves behar / fuseproject

the way in which we look for content on TV has not changed significantly since its inception.
satellite and digital cable guides remain antiquated, but our means of channel surfing has
become more complex, with the surplus of hundreds of channels one must go through
in find programming which interests them.


the peripherals come in pear, apple or orange shapes

‘peel’ designed by yves behar / fuseproject is meant to cut away this tedious task of channel surfing.
an app which
is used via the iPhone connects the device to WiFi. all you have to do
is tell ‘peel’
what interests you and it tells you what’s on television. it learns
the types of programming you watch
and filters out the rest so
you don’t have to spend time flipping through every single channel.

its aesthetic is a bit varied from that of standard TV equipment.
metaphorically, this intuitive universal entertainment control’s name, brand and fruit-shaped forms
are about peeling away layers
of complexity. available in three different peripheral – a pear, apple
or orange -
each features a lower portion that functions as a large
infrared window that relays your phone signal to your television.
instead of functioning as another remote with numerous button, ‘peel’ keeps it simple and easy.
