Human Interface Design Center
Early in the concept development phase, we encourage customers to visit our Design Center in LaGrange, IL. In the center, we have collected an assortment of products and samples showing the trade-offs in specifications, haptics, aesthetics and cost of using various solutions for:

• Touch or push input devicesDesign Center Technologies
• Turn or rotate input devices
• Joysticking or other multi-function input devices
• Backlighting techniques
• Piezo and vibratory motor haptics generators
• Monochrome display technologies
• Color display technologies
• Single touch, two touch and multi-touch technologies
• Wired communications
• Wireless Communications
• Plastic and metal formed piece parts
• Styling, texturing and finishes

After spending time in the Design Center, Industrial Designers and Engineers can quickly settle on the look and feel of the Human Interface for their new product that carefully considers cost, features and intuitive operation. There is no faster way to reach these decisions. Contact us to schedule an appointment to bring your design team in at any time.
