Powered by Silk Labs, Sense device can detect the owner’s presence, recognize voice and gestures, learn preferences, and synchronize all connected devices in the household to respond appropriately
Sense by Silk Labs is the Kickstarter-funded project that has an ambition to become the smart home device similar to our brains, eyes and ears, while using an innovative one-touch secure setup. A beautifully designed, powerful, and intelligent addition to any modern connected home, Sense is a powerful new platform for connected devices that is power enough to coordinates the devices all around us.
Founded by Andreas Gal, Chris Jones (both formerly of Mozilla) and Michael Vines (formerly of Qualcomm), Silk Labs’ goal is to build the first platform that exceeds the notion of remote sensor system and aims to be intelligent, powerful, and secure via local application processing. Seems like they’ve achieved success in it, as the $225 Sense gadget with its Silk-enabled hardware is capable to analyze what you and your family’s needs and helps to make the devices around you more responsive. Lights can be switched on when needed, music that you like will play, the thermostat can be automatically adjusted based on your preferences and routines.
The Sense by Silk Labs is a small box with a microphone, wide-angle camera, infrared sensor, accelerometer, and a status light. The gadget runs on 1GB of RAM, a 1.4GHz hexa-core processor, and has 8GB of internal storage. It plugs into the wall with a Micro USB cord and can be activated via application after paired with smartphone.
