Welcome to the visual smartwork revolution
Teamplayer draws on the interactive and playful spirit of video games and on the power and ergonomics of digital music-making tools to revolutionize our working environment and the way we interact in teams. Mouse and screen, paperboards, email or slides all fail to overcome the new challenges we face at work: abolition of physical and time barriers, dramatic increase of information flow, expanding number of teams and projects… The time has come for new powerful, visual, smooth, intuitive and inspiring tools that can accelerate teamwork.
In a mobile and multidimensional work environment, conventional screens and workstations reduce interactions and make us less creative and capable to express our ideas. On the contrary, with its smart controllers and its sets of shortcuts by way of adaptive screens and customizable keys, Teamplayer makes visual management accessible to all, to unleash interactions and puts the human dimension back at the center of our workspace.
Smart controllers for unique interactions
Klaxoon Teamplayer comes with a set of innovative smart controllers with interactive screens which adapt in real-time to our actions: the Pad and the Wheel. Engineered to stimulate and facilitate actions, they can be used to answer questions, browse through ideas on a brainstorm, launch a quiz, take part intuitively and instantaneously in a vote… Ultra-flexible and customizable, they provide physical and smart shortcuts to perform whatever action, connect to applications or services we wish to perform. Deeply innovative, Teamplayer’s new interface offers a smoother transition from physical to digital environments.
The wheel: compact, it fits in one hand and allows you to navigate your way through various activities. Turn, push, grab or press to discover a totally new way to access information, select, vote, answer questions, receive notifications and interact with them.
The Pad: with its 9 adaptive screen keys, the Pad offers visual and smart shortcuts which adapt to our actions in real-time. They open up a new field for expression and collaboration.
A new ultra-customizable open platform.
Teamplayer not only works with teamwork tools designed by Klaxoon. It comes with the possibility to use your favorite solutions for teams at work, such as Dropbox, with a new user experience. Application developers can fully customize Teamplayer with any types of shortcuts and actions and combine up to 7 connected controllers. Teamplayer users too can customize their set to get the most out of this new collaborative workspace.
«Teamplayer breaks away with ergonomic conventions, » says Matthieu Beucher, Klaxoon’s CEO. «It brings much more fun to work when interacting, expressing ideas, processing information in a more intuitive way and inventing new ways to interact. We are really keen to see how everyone will take hold of Teamplayer to transform the way they collaborate and build more human workspaces ».
«We’re thrilled to expand our partnership with Klaxoon to enable deeper collaboration among our joint users, » says Wendy Wrobel, Global Head of Strategic Alliances at Dropbox. «At Dropbox, our vision for the smart workspace is to bring together our users entire application ecosystem so they can collaborate more seamlessly and focus on the work that matters».
Klaxoon Teamplayer will be launched in June 2020. From $890.
