lunar design: gesture remote

the gesture remote is a new approach to the tv remote control by lunar design. the button-less device was designed by lunar europe with ident technology and zinosign. to operate the remote, users hold it in their hand and gesture with their fingers, much like on a touchscreen phone. each function has a gesture associated with it rather than a specific button. zoom is an upwards motion, browsing is a scrolling motion, etc. the device is designed to fit comfortable in the hand with a smooth form that lends itself to small finger gestures. while this type of tv remote is new, on screen navigation and functionality will soon demand this more intuitive and flexible interaction.

design-aerobics: tech gadgets course (september 16th – november 16th) designboom is holding an online design course on the topic of ‘tech gadgets’.

we’ll be looking at the design process of popular technological objects, the ways they have evolved and pondering as to what might be around the corner.

more information on how to enroll and a lesson list can be found here.

  • A futuristic design. I like it.

    T. E. Samad says:
  • nice design

    max from Cash Back Stores says:
  • I like the form. I like that it’s not about touching a button the screen of the remote displays, like others i’ve seen. But I think its unnecessary to create a remote this sophisticated. The gesture interface is nice, but i doubt users will execute correctly every time, all the time.
    Time will tell the success.

    Marlon says:
  • Nice. You wont have dirt collecting in the button crevices.

    Darshan says:
  • I think its high time we define some international motions associated with the common functions!

    Le says:
  • reminds me of B&O. Beosound5 (interface)

    Bo says:
  • Clearly a copy of the zero mouse design, only turned upside down.
    Check it out:

    OR says:
  • A copy? Zero mouse and this remote have same form factor as a standard mouse with a hole in it. The forms are both not creative, putting a hole inside a mouse isn’t exciting design. The functions and interface makes this design interesting.
