Tangible human-machine interfaces such as remote controls are based on a linear logic with designated buttons. Still, their operation is still often subject to trial and error as signs, symbols and inscriptions on remotes can be unclear. This concept takes trial and error as the starting point for its design. Intended to be accessible without pre-existing knowledge, its operation is not mapped to designated buttons: Instead, it is mapped to intuitive gestures. The panel is haptic, responding to touch with vibration and light patterns.
Its logic is based on self-learning algorithms, learning gestures from users and answering with distributed vibrations and patterns of light before initiating actions (changing room temperature, room light, sound etc).
