Physical iPad Interface With Knobs, Buttons And Sliders
Modulares Interface B.A. offers unique control options, precision and haptic feedback to our digital devices
In the wake of the digital world, we decreasingly lose physical control of our products. Touch screens replace keyboards and apps replace instruments, but that’s not to argue that people have lost their desire or value for physicality. Most readers, myself included, still savor holding a magazine in my hand and turning the pages one by one.
A desire for tactile feedback while interacting with multi-functional touch screens is exactly what led German Interaction Designer Florian Born to create Modulares Interface B.A. The project for iPad, an aluminum collection of physical buttons, replaces the digital interface to expand the user’s control over their mobile devices.
