MX Box / 2006

Video / VJ Controller

The interface between man and computer is the point where the MX box should be applied. MXWendler is a real-time Compositing Environment, which allows for Vjing, stage and event video in professional quality and with unique features on affordable hardware. In order to exhaust the possibilities of the live performance, keyboard and mouse are not enough. Those things even can be an obstacle for the user. Different interfaces reach different target groups.

The goal of the project was to design a draft and realize it in form of an (MIDI/USB/DMX) Hardware Controller (prototype) for MXWendler. The interface between man and computer is the point where the MX box should be applied. With the help of ten fingers and a distinctive sense of touch the software can be controlled like an instrument.

Christian Guder is a Berlin based Product, Interface and Interaction Designer. He is operating at the interface between art, design and technology. After an apprenticeship as industrial mechanic at Leica Microsystems, Jena he studied at the Bauhaus-University Weimar Product Design.The past two years, Christian Guder gained practical experience working as a project manager and interface designer at Christopher Bauder`s Studio - WHITEvoid interactive art&design, Berlin, Germany. This involved realising international projects ranging from installations, to user interfaces for museums and trade shows targeting appeal to the public. Furthermore, through my apprenticeship as an industrial mechanic, I am highly skilled in mechanical engineering. I believe an ever growing range of technologies will be introduced into our environments in the future. Our task as designers is to take this growth in the field of industrial engineering and form it through good design that makes the technology accessible to the customer. Christian Guder Portfolio gives you a introduction to my work.
