Stylish Innovation, Minimalist Design Remote


As I've previously stated, the typical consumer electronics (CE) remote control design leaves much to be desired. That said, I'm always on the look out for a fresh approach. I strongly believe that creative and functional designs can positively differentiate a device in an otherwise 'commodity' CE product category.

Ruwido, the leading European manufacturer of remote controls, presents VEXO, a universal remote control designed to control all functions of up to 16 devices without the need for a single button. Now, that's certainly a different approach.

VEXO is a stylish innovation with minimalist design. A silver-coloured key-coin made of aluminium, set in black glossy polycarbonate glass, replaces the usual chaos of buttons. The thumb is used to intuitively control all functions with rotating and pressing operations. A back-lit display clearly guides the user through the breadth of devices and functions.

The core of the innovative usability concept behind the VEXO is referred to as its "simplexity". This is the complex and intelligent technology inside the control (complexity), which can be operated simply and intuitively by the user (simplicity).

Such an elaborate concept required an extensive research and development phase over many years which was also supported and substantiated by dissertations of employees in the "Ruwido usability studio" and co-operation with scientific facilities such as the Information and Communication Technologies & Society (ICT&S) of the University of Salzburg.

The VEXO is at the same time a pioneer of a new technology platform presented by Ruwido which has already been prepared in anticipation of the interactive and Internet-based applications and devices of the future.
