We’ve crammed our apartment and offices with TVs and computer screens. And, yet, most of the time, they sit there, idle. Yes, that’s right, they’re idle when we’re not there watching and when you’re not using them. This is also true of all many different and entangled cables, which are used to charge and connect our devices together.
I/ We’ve purchased devices and failed to connect them to one another
Plus, we usually also have a hard time connecting together our various devices that we use to go online, watch movies, play games or listen to music. Apple had an ad which mentions this very issue. They talk about how the PC is unable to « talk » to a Japanese Camera.
Isn’t this absurd ? We’ve purchased all these products and we’re unable to get them to connect to one another.
Good news, folks : This time is over ! Introducing Keecker, a great disruptive product.
II/ Keecker brings greater connectivity
Keecker is a new cute rolling robot. It will enable us to use any surface in our home or office, day or night, wall or ceiling as a screen. We’ll use this to :
- project movies
- check our mails
- surf the web
- display family pictures
- change the walls into a view of the Milky Way to make the kids go to sleep
And all this is controlled by your smartphone.
III/ Keecker brings a new immersive digital experience
The great innovation here is that Keecker blends digital screens with actual brick and mortar surfaces thanks to a projector. You won’t need a fixed TV or a fixed PC screen anymore. Even better, if you want to cook, Keecker will display the recipe on the fridge. It’s like taking the internet, movies, music and digital content out of their computer coffins and spreading them all around you in a Matrix-like immersive experience. Keecker also comes in with regular temperature and humidity sensors to monitor your house or office.
Keecker is going to really change the way we work in the digital age, just like Steve Jobs changed the computer industry in 1984 by releasing the mouse. The new Steve Jobs behind Keecker is called Pierre Lebeau, a young engineer and a former Google Product Manager, with a French flair for simplifying our lives. As Steve Jobs used to say, “technology is about amplifying a human ability”. And Keecker does just that: it blends our rooms or and gardens with digital content into digital safaris.
Keecker will be available for sale at the end of 2014. In the meantime, check it out at the CES in Las Vegas. Also, check out their corporate website: www.keecker.com
