The idea ๐Ÿ’ก


**Quadro is a new way to interact with your computer**, whether you need to speed up you workflow with professional software, or just a cool remote for your media player. **It is a complete but simple interface that helps you stay focused on your task instead of getting lost among menu actions and options.** Being a piece of software, it's easy to overlook the fact that it is not just an app, but should rather be regarded as a new paradigm in computer interaction. It comes in "software flavor", sure, but this is mainly for ecological reasons; you may as well see it working on a dedicated device, don't you? When looking at it this way, it's easier to give Quadro its well deserved spot in the evolution of computing tools.
