Second Life
Mathias Leopold Hörlesberger

Inspired by spending a lot of time at Kierrätyskeskus and the question of why remote-controls come in standardized shapes.

Second Life is a gesture-based remote-control object (proof-of-concept) that uses the Zigbee communication protocol. So, it can be combined with recycled furniture or home appliances by using adequate smart light bulbs or electric plugs. The shape opposes the unchanged cuboid and cylindric shapes of remote-controls - and integrates the remote-control as an object into the living space.

A second life for non-smart recycled objects.
