Second Place Winner! Here's my entry for the MX-3000 design contest. I tried to take advantage of the animation capabilities of the remote while drawing off of the unique industrial, mechanical feel I originated in my PCF design "Perforated Metal." I wanted to make it feel as if the interface was composed of materials that would actually be used to create an RC device. Almost all of the buttons have unique static and selected states. I think there is a sense of tangible space in my design that sets it apart without making it too flashy and a directness in design which makes it clear and easy to use. I hope you enjoy using the interface as much as I did creating it.
Second Place Winner! This template was specifically designed to be easy to use while keeping an intuitive, easy to understand layout. The most common functions are on the main page and the template will walk you to the next step. The design can be easily reconfigured to suit just about anyone's equipment.
It also features a battery meter on every source page with charging confirmation and shortcuts to the most commonly used pages for each device. All device pages have a direct shortcut to the source select page, this keeps almost every page only two button pushes away.
If you have a first generation MX3000 with 32MB of memory, there should be plenty of memory space on the remote for Bracken's DMX3000 (DVD changer software) and over 400 DVD covers.
Second Place Winner! I designed this layout to provide an extremely user-friendly remote which didnít make too many compromises in functionality. I created a series of buttons which could easily be reused in other projects. I also experimented with colors which were easy to read, and easy to distinguish. Each device has its own color palette. This allows another identifying characteristic for each component and reduces the possibility of confusion. There is also a sense of consistency and unity throughout the remote. This file also makes use of variables, offers feedback wherever possible, sound and much more.
