Working as the Senior Designer for a Home Automation startup was an absolute dream. We were forging new territory in practically every respect of usability and utility of technology and interfaces such as touchscreens and capacitive surfaces that seems utterly commonplace today.
And so it was with the Colorado vNet in wall touchscreen amplifier. I had the pleasure of working with some of the finest industrial designers and engineers to define and produce what was some seriously revolutionary hardware, software and interface at the time. No stone was left unturned…
I worked directly with the industrial designer to define both the material specs so that we could effect a completely seamless transition between the screen and the decor.
For over a year I was practically connected at the hip with the engineers to define the implementation of the themes, the behavior of the UI to touch and gesture, to continue to define and refine and iterate on each new interactive facet of the home that was to be automated: audio, video, security, lighting and so forth.
And the response was enormous. Colorado vNet’s launch of the Touchscreen Amplifier immediate catapulted it to the attention of installers around the world eager to present this award-winning jewel to their discerning customers.
