In my ergonomical work at the university Duisburg/Essen a fellow student (Matthias Moos) and me designed a remote control in cooperation with the wellknowen german toy manufacturer SIKU. It has four different infrared frequences for stearing four toycars at the same time and lots of ad on functionalities that differ from the variety of cars (tractors, harvesters, fire engines, ambulances, trucks, trailers, …) The specifics are the special dimensions of the design wich allow an easy stearing and understanding of use for children as well as for grown ups. Furthermore its special arrangement of different buttons and their funcions have come to a patenting. The RC was rewarded with the price of „best new toylaunch 2005“.
