SCAD UX Studio 1 class was prompted to design for emotion.

Project Description


We were given 8-weeks to create a concept so my team and I focused on a Smart IoT remote. Guide is a smart remote focused on the people who use it. The E-ink device seamlessly connects Wifi, Bluetooth and Infrared devices and curates an easy to use management system right in your hands.

“I have so many different devices that I love to use, but instead of making my life easier, it makes it more complicated. I just want a simple way to use all my smart tech, and make my time at home more relaxing”

Our Intended Goal

Everything on the market for home is currently “smart,” but how can we create a device that connects a plethora of these smart 3rd party home devices and make them not only smart but also carry the essence of making home feel like home?
