Touchscreen interfaces have weaved their way into the very fabric of our lives, from the tool that connects us to the net international, through to the display screen that controls the temperature within our homes. Whilst their uses are various, in addition they cause a disconnect among us and the product… don’t we deserve hotter, more tangible interactions?
This turned into the purpose for Sound Tool, a speaker that’s operation is predicated upon physical instinct, main it to be emotionally stimulating! The principal source of idea comes from the eccentric movement of a Conductor; as the extent of the orchestra increases, as too does the Conductors physical presence. This has been beautifully translated into Sound Tool through encouraging the user to growth the extent of the tune through grabbing every cease of the speaker and pulling them apart! It’s welcoming to see a product that encourages tangible interactions!
Inspired by using bodily intuition and emotion. Taking cues from past rituals and interactions.
I took idea from how a conductor bodily manipulates song.
Bigger = Louder
To increase the quantity of Sound Tool, grab it and make it larger. To decrease the volume, compress it. Fully collpase it to pause, Sound Tool will now not play at zero% quantity.
Louder = More Alive
When Sound Tool is louder, it feels extra alive. When multiplied, it opens up and gets brighter in color due to its pleated nature.
