Teddy bear used a remote control
I like this teddy bear used a remote control (I am pretty much into kids tangible interface lately, working for a consulting about it). This project carried ou at IDI is called Quattro Didier Hilhorst and Nicholas Zambetti.
Quattro is a radio alarm clock housed in an enigmatic translucent enclosure without any markings. Its function depends on its position: orientating it on its side, upright or horizontally, it becomes (respectively) a radio, an alarm timer, or a clock. As you approach Quattro it detects your presence and reveals illuminated touch-sensitive controls relevant to its current function. This minimal object works in tandem with a cuddly, cute bear; squeezing him performs various actions including a remote ‘snooze’ operation.
