Simplified interaction through a
single input interface.

All interation affordances are managed through 1 single input inferface - the Knob - it turns the device on/off, activates, edit and saves up to 4 different pre-sets speeds.Through a simple interaction, it can also activate a continuous mode, removing the need of an external footswitch.
