VUX – Virtual User Experience

The virtual control interface VUX is created by light projection. The central and flexible interface enables users to control various networked devices in the kitchen. The interface can be projected on different areas of the worktop and integrate different control elements of kitchen devices – from the stove to the dishwasher. In addition to convenient control options, VUX users benefit from easy cleaning and an enhanced safety of use.

Jury Statement

VUX fundamentally transforms the conventional interaction experience in the kitchen area through a combination of projection technology, motion sensors and networked content. The ‘projective interface’ turns the kitchen area into a virtual space that can adapt responsively to user actions. The system also transmits voice calls and video images. VUX thus resolves the previous disconnect between analogue and digital, and in the process creates an entirely new user experience.
