Evaluation

There is a physical limitation on the buttons of the existing remote controller for up-to-date design with multiple channels and complex functions. Inevitably the mode concept was introduced and cognitive burden for users only increases. This remote control system skillfully uses three-dimensional expressions on the TV screen and succeeds in implementing object shapes composed of several operating panels as psychological models to users by simple touch panels. The interface design that more aggressively applies software technologies shows a contemporary design example.
