Ubi – The Ubiquitous Computer
Amount pledged: $229,594
A Siri-like home assistant, Ubi is an always-on, voice-activated home computer. Want to send a text or change the thermostat while you’re chopping vegetables or otherwise engaged? Ubi’s goal is to let people interact with the Internet and their environment without using their hands. When it ships, a few applications include voice-enabled Internet search, a baby monitor, a noise pollution monitor and an indicator system that causes a light to blink when a stock hits a certain price or a email from your boss comes through. It recently announced that it will partner with SmartThings for a voice-controlled home automation platform.
