Contest Entry #01: Perforated Metal
RUNNER UP! I have put a lot of thought into the layout of my PCF design and I think it makes good use of the Pronto NG’s color capabilities without being gratuitously flashy. I wanted to give the design a sense of spatial depth and for it to have an industrial feel, like it was actually made of materials that would be used to construct an RC device, but I also wanted it to have a slightly surreal quality to make it fun to use.

The design incorporates both “activity” and “device” concepts. The “cinema” pages, for example, execute macro events where audio, video and lighting adjustments will automatically be made. If however you wish to make an adjustment to the picture or sound qualities during these macro events, the “remotes” button will allow access to individual device control.

While the file is large (please be patient while loading!!!) and the design contains a number of hidden and (seemingly) redundant pages, these were necessary for proper navigation. For example, when selecting the “TV” button on the “remotes” page to access the TV remote, the appropriate “source” button (DVD, VHS, etc…) on the TV remote page will be dimmed depending on which video source is currently active.

I have animated many of the buttons so that motion takes place on the touchscreen outside of the finger-press area, giving a visual indicator that the proper button has (or has not) been selected. If a mistake is made, the “system reset”, “lit globe” , and “browse back arrow” (intuitively patterned with the “lit globe” design) will return the user either to the “splash” page (where all devices reset to default settings), or last page visited.

Other animations are included in the design, which simply add to the overall visual interest. (Check out the flip-up panel on the TV remote pages and the flame animation on the CD-R remote page…it’s subtle, but my favorite.

I had a lot of fun thinking of ways to make the Pronto NG an interesting and unique user-experience. I hope you enjoy using it.
