Futuristic smart home interface device ‘Nuimo’ to change your life

As our gadgets become smarter and as our regular home appliances and features become more connected, there might be a growing need to have a smart controller that controls all of it from one place. At the moment things like smart locks, smart bulbs, and etc. can be controlled via your phone.

Creator of Nuimo
A group friends of hardware startup company ‘Senic’ based in Berlin; looking to solve a problem that we all have to solve in daily life - how we could use the technology we loved in our homes, but get away from the screens of our computers and phones. They spent over a year thinking of ways that could put the user back at the center of the smart home and their first solution in a line of products is the ‘Nuimo’.

The design of the Nuimo is pretty simple. It’s basically round and shaped like a hockey puck and the device itself has four main commands – click the disc, turn its dial, swipe on its surface, and even perform gestures above its surface. From there users can pair the Nuimo with a bunch apps and control it from here.

About the project
Nuimo is a universal controller for the internet of things. Control your music, lights, locks and more. Nuimo is an intuitive and natural way to interact with your connected devices. Nuimo works with any bluetooth device or application including Sonos and Philips Hue. 

Nuimo is a freely programmable controller and wireless so you can take it anywhere. Using the nuimo you can control all of your devices through a simple and seamless physical controller.

Unlike the touch screen, nuimo has a number of touch based inputs that feel familiar and suit your needs. It incorporates capacitive touch, gesture recognition and a 360 degree analog ring that gives you precise control over everything from the volume of your music to switching off your lights. These inputs are easily mappable to the devices and applications you care about most.

Easy setup
Nuimo can connect to anything that uses Bluetooth Low Energy, this includes your computer and most connected devices. No additional hardware is required to connect to your smart devices. Setup is simple through a smartphone or computer - simply load on the applications you want for nuimo and adjust the controls to suit your needs.

Once setup is complete you can switch through apps you're using right on the face of the device. Nuimo is wireless so it can go with you. It was designed to be beautiful and not only act as a seamless interface for technology but fit seamlessly into your home among your most treasured objects.

Going forward
Nuimo is just the first step toward better designing technology to fit into our lives. Inventors will be expanding their product line to feature smart surfaces and interfaces that reenvision the way we use technology.
