Media Centre

The working prototype of the media centre is part of the 2006 Lifestyle Home project from Philips. The unit serves as the media centre for direct access to music without switching on the TV, which otherwise serves as the music browser. The media centre displays graphics as an ambient background and can be controlled by gestures without touching it.
Online purchases can also be made by brushing your card on this wall mounted device.

The additional remote control prototype is button-free and uses a swiping gesture interface and a simple axis system.
