Android Things Lantern

We worked with Google to make something for the new Android Things OS that would inspire designers and developers to engage with the platform. Using an Ikea lamp, laser projector and Raspberry Pi, Lantern explores the relationships between surfaces and content - augmenting real-world objects and environments with glanceable data. Lantern is currently being exhibited at Google I/O.

Ding, the smart doorbell.

We helped Ding create their first product: a connected doorbell. Our companion app reflects Ding’s understated design aesthetic to feel more like part of your home, and less like a gadget. Simple features like ‘Quiet Time’ are sensitive to the needs of the user, and their young children.

Grisedale Pike, a dialect bot.

A hacked e-reader that displays tweets from @GrisedalePike - a bot that's always grumbling about the weather in Cumbrian dialect. In contrast to phone/TV screens, e-ink refreshes do not demand our attention, providing a calmer, more respectful approach to inviting technology into our homes.
