mui is a wooden touch panel display system that serves as a smart home control hub. It enables not only to interconnect different smart home devices, but also has its own function including notifications, light and music controller, messaging and calendar sharing. We were especially particular about the material because we value the sensibility, not to feel like robotic or coldness as we always do when it comes to interacting with digital devices. After a series of prototyping, we finally succeeded to develop very unique hardware design to use wood, which brought us to acquire the intellectual property rights.
mui is inspired by the Taoism philosophy of “mui shizen” which we believe to conceptualize the harmony among humans, the nature surrounding us and technology that we have developed.
mui emphasizes the moments of feeling joy and comfort in our daily life where more and more productivity and convenience is highlighted with the concept of “Calm Technology & Design”. Through our product, we would like you to have different experiences from the existing digital devices which may be able to fulfill your unmet needs through sharing moments and memories with your loved ones and through touching nature. Our product does not force you to change your natural behavior, but rather calmly and elegantly sit as if one of your furniture and notify you important information and encouraging more communications with your family members.
mui inspires Calm Moments. mui is designed as smart home hub for connected devices and connecting family members together via applications. mui will continue to update latest features and applications via cloud computing.
mui mobile app is designed for connecting families via messaging features. Via mui App platform(APIs), smart home setting up will be optimized and installed.
