Touchless Remote Control Concept

Bang and Olufsen has created a remote control concept that is intended to keep devices bacteria free.

The remote responds to finger gestures and lifts and falls when the volume is adjusted.

What’s nice about this concept is that B&O’s approach maintains the brands tradition of providing high performing products that look and sound great, while keeping in mind that technology should work for people.

Although the prototype needs some work, the potential to add value to the entertainment experience could raise the profile of the overall brand. If they can deliver on the promise of hardware as functional art, the brand idea could lead to sustainable future innovation initiatives.

Video clips of the remote concept and an actual prototype are below.
