What is a ‘mui Board’?
The mui Board turns itself on only when you need to access your important information. The board will otherwise remain off, visually blending into your surroundings as if it’s a piece of furniture. The board is designed to let you send and receive digital information through the warmth of the natural wood, changing your relationship with technology with one look at the panel, or one finger stroke across its surface, at a time.
The mui Board serves as a key interface for the mui Platform, our calm system platform that can be flexibly customized to meet the needs of our client companies and to synchronize with third-party services. We use the mui Board and mui Platform to provide novel smart home experiences that help residents achieve new higher levels of personal well-being."
