International, interdisciplinary concept design project POLE in association with Audi. The aim of the assignment was to develop three products for the year of 2025. Our team of engineers, designers, medialogists and psychologists focused on the topic of shopping and the acquisition of products through various methods.
The following designs show the final products we presented to Audi:
SLY is a software compatible with every other device (that has a display). Its regular use is supposed to be via television – so the SLY software runs in the background while you’re watching TV. On request of its user, SLY reads the metadata of movies and advertisements, searches for the favoured product(s) in the internet and illustrates the offers in a user-friendly and very comfortable manner.
PAL, is a smart device – a simple screen with an earplug. However, our PAL is part of a whole product family of devices with screens (e.g. smart clips, mobile phone cases, rings, glasses, watches, lenses). The most essential feature of PAL is the fact that it is able to understand its owner – acoustically and semantically.
LYL is a 3D projection and 3D scanning device with haptic and osmatic feedback that is able to project products (e.g. an apple, a dress, a car or a bed) and even places (like St. Peter’s Square in Rome or the beach of Honolulu) in three dimensions (3D). LYL is meant for private indoor use only, the minimalistic design has its origin in the look of a lotus flower.
