Inspired by the metaphor of the toothbrush in a family household, where each member recognizes this personalized object through a color-coding system, Twistymote features a twistable module–a cube–with different colors on each side that can be assigned to each user. When you twist the cube, you self-identify to the television through a simple gesture. The remote knows who you are in a very simple way, just like when you are picking your toothbrush in the bathroom. Therefore, by knowing who the owner is, the system can progressively learn about the viewer’s habits, make recommendations, organize favorite categories and filter the undesired content.
