REMO : EMF Recorder
I was responsible for designing the shape + physical operation of the REMO : EMF Recorder. There were many constraints including fixed display and three button functionality.
I conducted primary research to better understand practical use cases. [I.T. Research] adopted my design and is selling REMO in Japan.

Remo operates using three buttons. Each button executes a function in the display.
I tested many button designs to optimize ease of use.

Rapid Prototyping
Initially I shaped REMO using styrofoam to quickly make iterations based on user feedback and research.
