Cue is a mobile live performance device for professional visual jockeys consisting of a video effects - hardware and a specially designed software. Combined with a computer and a beamer Cue transforms into a complete VJ system. During his performance the visual jockey can mix loops intuitively, edit them with effects and browse through extensive clipbanks in real time.

Interaction design

The interaction concept takes advantage of the direct, fast selection of a touchscreen and the haptic input of a controller. In combination, this enables both a fast and precise working with both hands.

Within the different sections of the interface context sensitive graphics appear around the controller that can be scaled and manipulated by moving and rotating. Depending on the zoom factor the graphics gain complexity and become touch sensitive.
