Creating Innovative ‘Calm UIs’ Using Our Own Technological and Design Expertise
We consider ourselves, collectively, to be a living, breathing and working “lab” of calm hose for smart home builders.
technology. We conduct R&D to conceive of and deliver to the world innovative, calm IoT interface systems that enable peaceful digital living, thereby helping people improve their total well-being.
Our patented touch panel display technology – which is used to create the “mui Board,” our flagship wooden display panel – is what both empowers and sets us apart in creating unique, cutting-edge software and hardware, including calm “user interfaces (UIs)” – or calm “touchpoints.”
The fruit of our R&D efforts is directly provided to our corporate clients in the form of the “mui Platform.” The platform enables us to apply mui’s proprietary display technology and system development methods to develop calm IoT systems that fulfill each company’s unique needs and vision. We also make the platform available to companies through licensing. The platform serves as a powerful tool for us to create our original interfaces as well.
We also conduct academic research on the effectiveness of calm technology on users’ well-being from various angles, including how its esthetics can impact a user's mood and creativity, how the seamlessness of the technology improves overall user experience, and how calmer digital communications can improve the user's physical and emotional well-being. At mui Lab, we aim to understand the relationship between humans and technology, so we can develop and implement calm technologies in a way that contributes to our well-being, as well as societal peace and health.
