The very antithesis of touch-sensitive displays, the Chubby Buttons aims to serve you wherever touchscreens fail. Be it in the bathroom when your fingers are wet, or while bicycling when you can’t really look down at your screen to see what you’re pressing, or if you’re hitting the slopes and the gloves are too thick for you to operate a touch interface, the Chubby Buttons Remote and its significantly large buttons help you navigate playback in a way that’s easy, swift, and extremely intuitive. With just 5 buttons, you can even operate the Bluetooth remote without looking at it.
In a world where touchscreen interfaces are making their way into cars (we’re looking at you, Tesla) it’s worth really realizing that while touchscreens are incredibly versatile, they’re still a tactile nightmare. It’s still exceedingly difficult to use a touchscreen without actually looking at it, and impossible if you’ve got gloves on, or you’ve got wet hands, or worse still, a bandage. That’s sort of what Chubby Buttons is trying to solve, with its massive, simplified interface. Perfect for anywhere from biking to bathrooms, the remote lets you do a pretty good job of controlling music or podcast playback. The waterproof, dustproof, and snowproof remote comes with a nanosuction surface on its rear, allowing it to be stuck to flat surfaces in your bathroom, kitchen, or your Tesla, while two wide eyelets on the top and bottom allow you to strap the remote to your hand, letting you control playback or even take selfies, without having to look at your screen, or take off those protective gloves. Plus, it comes with a battery that lasts for months, so you’re sorted all through skiing season!
