Interfaces

NFC title pink copy

NFC copy

Interfaces is my latest project, it is by no means finished nor is it at this stage a design-project with commercial intent. It’s more a research exploration in using NFC as an interface.  I will soon post a more in depth post around my research, reasoning and conclusions. But for now, here is a lot of colourful pictures and a video!

Wireless

MA-project

6

So today I’ve been making a first prototype of a wireless version of the dock.
I started out by cutting a HP touchstone charger in half to make it smaller (and made my finger a bit lighter as well)…1

The hefty chunk of metal that adds that “premium” feel to the charger had to go, way to big.

DIY milling, and again my hand got a bit lighter…

everything fits into the prototype, so far so god…

unfortunately this little fella just says biz biz biz (when in fact it should be saying biiiiiiiiiizzzzzzzz)
Conclusion: The wood is to thick, anything more than 2-3mm makes it loose connection. This might end up causing me some problems… I might switch to a powermat system which if I remember correctly are stronger (but bigger).
