CRISTAL – Control of Remotely Interfaced Systems using Touch-based Actions in Living spaces

at 12:50 am. Filed under Complex Hacks, Computer Hacks, Insane Equipment


This CRISTAL remote system by the folks at Media Interaction Lab would be a welcome addition to any complex home theater setting. The intuitive ease of use is something that current remote controls can only dream about. Recently some remote controls have incorporated color LCD displays to attempt to allow additional functionality but it can only go so far. Now that projection technology has been dropping in price I can see this interactive projection technology become common place (I can’t wait!!!). Until then I will continue to use my Atari 2600 Remote Control. 🙂

"Many remote controls lack intuitive interfaces for mapping control functions to the device intended being controlled. This often results in trial and error button pressing, or experimentation with graphical user interface (GUI) controls, before a user achieves their intended action. CRISTAL simplifies the control of our digital devices in and around the living room. The system provides a novel experience for controlling devices in a home environment by enabling users to directly interact with those devices on a live video image of their living room using multi-touch gestures on a digital tabletop."

    A noter one of those relay cool and awesome things that will never become common, this one particularly because of the complicated setup and when you look at every day use it inset the most practical thing. A simple remote is much more practical when laying across a sofa.Also the cool way of browsing the movies or photos wouldn’t work well if you had like 1000 photos in there and like 100 movies.Also a media center PC dose all that stuff already.

    But no dought is this thing cool. Would wow anyone that walks in to your living room.
