Gel Like Remote Concepts from Panasonic
Here’s a pretty disgusting/interesting concept from Panasonic, a gel made remote that, according to Panasonic, creates the desire to touch and hold it…
Not sure if I’ll get the urge to touch and play with a jellyfish like remote any time soon.
“Constructed of a soft, flesh-like gel, the remote appears cold when off. Once turned on, however, it seems to come to life. A soft light emanates somewhere from within as the center of the device begins to slowly rise and fall, mimicking the tranquil motions of breath. Left undisturbed, the remote will slumber peacefully. Both should a human hand approach, sensors inside alert it to the imminent touch. It stops breathing, grows rigid – the light from within is extinguished. A remote is the ideal metaphor for the disturbance electronic distraction poses to life. If we had to interrupt its life before it could interrupt ours, we may think twice before picking it up.”
