The wearable market emerged in sports and fitness, but will migrate to become a SoulMate, an intimate device that knows more about you than you know your self. The SouldMate is an indispensable wearable assistant merging health, financial, identity and social in an ambient and effortless manner. We do not think the SoulMate will emerge overnight, but the industry will iterate, perhaps even a decade, until one day we wake-up thinking this is a device we cannot live without. The dream of the SoulMate gets us out of bed each day perfecting our software.
BOLL is a Koru vision of a smart home controller with a beautiful glanceable user experience. We think these object become as popular as mobile phones, providing the internet of everything with the the smart terminal. Guided by design to match our interiors turns this into a rich market place of devices with varied styles and price points. Inspired by our Sonos devices, our Amazon Echo’s and being fans of Star Wars and its latest droid BB-8 we produced our own BOLL. We collaborated with Juha Kosonen, the designer behind some of Huawei’s wearables and Nokia audio products.
Devices like boll will become everyday decoration objects, they need to fuse style and utility. The variety in taste provides opportunity for manufacturers to differentiate.
Smart home controllers will be glancable sharing contextually relevant information as you pass by.
We think physical motion is critical for a sense of attentiveness. By matching ambient lighting to the interface we can achieve different levels of alertness in the device.
Every year we collect our thoughts and publish wearable trends. This helps us understand the market, the user needs and the moves of the key players. Our trends have become favorite reading among the insiders in the industry.
