Contoured Enclosures Employ Touch and Feel to Impart the Functionality of Electronics

Mon, 03/26/2012 - 5:24am

blobOKW has created the “BLOB” Series of contoured enclosures with housings that employ touch and feel to impart the functionality of the electronics while accommodating a wide range of users with different hand sizes and grasping volumes. When grasped, the user’s fingers naturally rest in the control area on these controllers. As a result, users naturally understand how to use the electronics without instructions. Keypads and controls can be easily located in these control areas. BLOB enclosures have a two-part design consisting of a top and bottom molding made of high quality ABS (UL 94 HB). The enclosures are available in two standard colors: off-white and lava gray. The range consists of three different types: the “UNIT” version (external dimensions of 5.11” x 2.36” x 1.18”) has a lower grasp area and a recessed keypad/control section and is suitable for left or right handed operation. The “CONTROL” version has external dimensions of 4.48” x 2.99” x 1.22” and can be held with one hand and operated with the other. Different sensory gripping options are available. The “PANEL” has external dimensions of 7.87” x 6.49” x 1.41” and can be held and operated with both hands or operated on a table. The two symmetrically positioned gripping areas clearly demonstrate the orientation of the product.
