The first personal 3D printer for your desk

In 2012 at a time when 3D printing meant big industrial machine that is run in a separate room by a specialist, Xeos 3D was breaking out of that mold with a new and innovative printing arm technology to dramatically reduce its footprint and an extremely easy to understand user experience. This allowed Xeos 3D to be the first printer of additive manufacturing that you would actually want to place next to your desk in your office.

Designed for users that want to verify form geometry fast and easy, it is made for consultancies, design departments and even your home office.

To land this new paradigm of an UI within the company, internal + external user testing and open houses within different teams at Sonos were used to stress test our assumptions and get to the final design. The result is a very responsive touch interface, paired with light feedback and ear-con sound design to support precise as well as casual all hand touch and swipe gestures – even when using the UI out of sight.

Limited space. Easy to use. Reliable.

Play:5 is the first Sonos speaker that features a capacitive touch user interface with touch and swipe gestures for play/pause, volume controls and previous/next track. The interface adjusts its functions automatically to all 3 orientations the speaker is used in.
