Pilotfish, a progressive industrial design and product development studio based in Munich, Amsterdam and Taipei, introduced Ondo, a dedicated music editing phone concept.
The Ondo concept is designed to enable OEMs to visualize a new form of user interaction for mobile phones.
Made from form-sensitive flexible materials, “Ondo” is designed to allow the user to modify recorded sounds by physically twisting and bending the device. Like a guitarist pulling on a whammy bar, users can feel and hear the musical effects as they create them.
Another feature of “Ondo” are the three removable display ”sticks”. In their normal state, the “sticks” act as a unified touch display for the mobile device. When removed, each can be separately clipped onto a musical instrument or person to capture live sound. Like a portable recording studio, “Ondo” makes mixing tracks easy, because each “stick” picks up isolated sounds from each individual instrument. The recordings can be immediately sent via MMS 2 (Multimedia Messaging) around the globe allowing musicians at different geographical locations to jam together.
In party mode, “Ondo” works as a digital mixer enabling the user to create transitions between songs.
