Soundsitive gesture-controlled speaker

Has the Nintendo Wii sparked off a whole bunch of accelerometer ideas in other pieces of consumer electronics? Perhaps, and as the Soundsitive gesture-controlled speaker suggests, this unique piece of equipment that was part of the Designlab show in Paris last month actually needs no knobs or buttons – all you have to do is move your hand closer or farther away from the top of the speaker, and the volume level can be manipulated in that manner. 

The visual cue as to how high the volume is at that moment is seen via an outer wooden veneer sleeve which will rise or lower itself, depending on your hand’s gestures. If you are bored of a particular track, just swipe your hand over the top of the speaker – left would mean going back one track, while right translates to fast forwarding by one.

We would say that remote control fans will loathe a speaker like this, as they would obviously prefer to sit in their La-Z-Boy and control the speaker from afar. After all, that’s what remote controls are meant for, right? If you want to exercise your hand, just get a Nintendo Wii instead.
