Device of the Week #3 – Palette Gear

Palette Gear is a device that would normally accompany a software such as Photoshop or Illustrator. The modular design of Palette Gear allows the user to customize their very own workspace that suits their needs and habit. Each and every cube is connected using magnets and either ‘male’ or ‘female’ connectors on its side, only the ‘male’ is able to connect to the ‘female’. The cube with the screen act as the ‘base’ as it serves as a port for all other cubes to get their power.

Component – Sliders, Knobs, Buttons, Resistor, Female and male connectors, magnet, USB cable

Palette Gear is a product that benefits professional that was in the design industry. It allowed a more efficient workflow and workspace that could integrate the habit of the professional with the software such as Photoshop and Illustrator.

The product was complex to make. Knobs, sliders, and button would give input and create a shortcut for the users. However, the software or driver would be extremely complex to mimic as it allows the user to customise and change the layout of the Palette Gear. I believed that such product should be seen more often in the future as it would further enhance our working habits.
