By combining traditional materials with reactive technologies, Tactile Speaker explores the possibilities of tangible and embodied interaction regarding music player.
Connected to the mobile music application through Bluetooth, Tactile Speaker enables people to play the music by motion control. There are three main functions: play by tapping the top surface; go backward or forwards by tilting the speaker, and control the volume by swiping the top surface.
Reactive sensors are embedded in the Tactile Speaker, which provide intuitive interaction. The design also examined minimalist aesthetics and materiality. Using maple wood and leather, the Tactile Speaker delivers a simple yet rich sense of aesthetic experience.
