Company description
Technology should make our lives easier, so why does controlling it feel so complicated? An endless maze of mobile apps, smart switches, and other interfaces create a confusing and fragmented experience. We believe there's a better way - Knocki offers the simplest, most natural, and accessible way to control the world around you. Knocki is a small wifi-enabled device that instantly transforms ordinary surfaces around you into powerful remote controls for your connected world. Using Knocki is easy - by gently tapping simple patterns anywhere on a Knocki activated wall, table-top, door, or furniture, you can control a wide array of connected devices in a powerful and highly accessible way. Knocki uses non-acoustic sensor technology to detect gentle surface gestures even a distance away, but Knocki also has the intelligence to filter out random vibrations. Therefore, Knocki works under busy breakfast tables and other "high-activity" surfaces. Knocki can make a difference in anyone's life. However, it can be truly life-changing for people with mobility or vision impairments who are unable to reach or visually locate a switch, button, or phone. Knocki also improves accessibility for children and the elderly.
