The team at Designit, Munich were looking to explore different ways of interacting with music. Tangibility in the audio world has almost disappeared. CDs and Vinyls, once popular are slowly fading away. How can we bring tangibility back through a modern day device? JVC Fuse was a part of collaboration team project at school. As a team member, I was involved in all steps of the design process, primarily ideation, scenario exploration and concept and form development. I was also incharge of videos for communication of ideas and thoughts.
Social - aimed at collaborating to mix playlists and discover music together. playlists and can be combined and so can the speakers output. The playlist band also acts as a control for the speaker device.
Ritual - Aimed at creating new interaction with your music. It includes a gesture sensitive remote which is used to control a wall mounted speaker. Once can set custom gestures and modes to make the speaker smart.
Share - Aimed at audiophiles. This directions primary goal is to re-create a previously recorded moment of audio or music through the help of a community. This is made possible by a handheld microphone captures high quality audio. When multiple users upload the audio files from an event based on their location, a software then links them all together and creates a 360 soundscape.
Big thanks to team leaders (Victor Martini and Maxime Journeaux), Matthias Schmiedbauer and Manuel Gattinger for supporting and guiding us through the project
