Remote controls are old technology like VHS to Blue ray, the Wii, and X-box Kinect are the new new. Technology is getting farther away from the black plastic rectangle with buttons. What if you controlled your TV, and video games by paddling through water? Or the movement of a rocking chair. The following are two new innovative ideas to control your technology remote-free.
Channels: Paddling your hands through two buckets on either side of a seat you can control your position on the screen with this remote. The design is supposed to be very tactile, imagine changing the channel by simply splashing your hand in a pool of water.
Cadence Chair: This control is set in a “standard issue rocking chair” the prototype asks the user try to match the rhythm of the music playing by rocking in unison, if you do, a video will be unlocked.
