Beo7 Remote Control

31 juli 2011

Bang & Olufsen is famous for their high-end and user-friendly designs. However their current Beo7 remote control seemed to have some usability issues. Both the physical and digital appearances of the old Beo7 were researched and its results were used to create a redesign.

The combination of physical buttons and touchscreen turned out to confuse the user. Therefore the amount of physical buttons was decreased to four and the touchscreen area was made twice as big. Finally, the redesign was assessed in a digital prototype, which is shown in the movie.
