SIMPLE REMOTE CONTROL
Remote controls are often crammed with all sorts of functions that are never or very rarely used. An important part of our approach to designing any human interface is to reduce the complexity.
In this example for a DVD recorder remote we studied the way the product was used and altered the design to prioritise the most popular functions and moved the less frequently used buttons to a hidden area of the remote for more advanced users.
This approach has the added benefit that customers build a degree of confidence in the product before they make the purchase rather than being put off by complicated looking controls. We used simple block prototypes to refine the ergonomics quite early on in the design process ensuring the most popular buttons were the most comfortable to use.
