The ‘Smart Dot’ project was developed to enter new markets with the aim at delivering new user experiences by reinterpreting an already existing product in the market through true convergence of hardware and software. By combining a laser pointer and Smart Phone, ‘Smart Dot’ & 'Smart Dot Pro' is an exciting new product that allows the use of both a physical and virtual laser pointer simultaneously.
The small cylindrical (8.9mm diameter) ‘Smart Dot’ can be plugged into any 3.5mm audio jack of Smart Phone, It is designed to be incredibly small and simple to configure and use, in addition, it does not require any separate batteries. By using the free for download ‘Smart Dot’, 'Smart Dot Pro' applications for iOS, the actual laser pointer and a virtual mouse pointer on the screen can be shown at the same time. The applications is compatible for both MS PowerPoint and Mac Keynote and makes the presentation environment much easier and more convenient.
‘Smart Dot’ & 'Smart Dot Pro' is a device that becomes a laser pointer when plugged into the audio jack of Smartphone. It is an exciting new product that is powered by the Smartphone and is free from battery replacements. ‘Smart Dot’ & 'Smart Dot Pro' provides easy, convenient, and flawless presentation environment when used with the free ‘Smart Dot’ & 'Smart Dot Pro' Applications with multiple functions. It is sure to become an excellent presentation partner for you.
Behavior Experience Design
When we look carefully, we can see that there are hundreds of objects around us. Each object has their own function, and we sometimes don’t even take notice of them even while using them. But then again, some objects we adore, while some we continue to complain about. The funny thing is, many of those objects are used for purposes other than their intended uses. And many times, the user will make changes to the object and use it for a completely new purpose. This shows that there is such a thing as design from behavior, and this is the design aspect that even the original designer of the object never would have imagined. We, at Tangram Design Lab, seek out such hidden behavior and apply it to the product, creating enhanced user experience and ultimately a better lifestyle.
In that sense, the Behavior Design Products that Tangram seeks to develop are not overly complicated products. They are simple intuitive products that we use in our everyday lives. We’re not saying the products are simple because of their design or structure. We’re saying they’re simple because they’re intuitive to use. And in order to develop such simple products, we need to fully understand the essential function of the object, while exploring the various relations it has to other objects and the diverse experiences that happen in relation to its use. When these observations are combined in one product, we get something that people say are ‘different in a way, but still familiar,’ or something that have people exclaim how ‘it’s much better using the product this way.' It is this kind of seemingly trivial, but still important emotional experience that completes the ultimate goal of ‘experience design.’ And that’s the ultimate Behavior Design that Tangram is working towards.
