“mui is an interactive wood panel that is activated by swiping your finger across its surface. Using the digital display that appears on the wood surface, you can talk, send and receive messages, and check the news and weather. You can also control connected devices in your home, office or public spaces, like lighting, thermostats, and so on. When you are done, the panel goes back to sleep mode and looks just like a piece of beautifully sanded wood again. In accordance with calm design principles, mui aims to minimize the “noise” of technology and create a calm and peaceful environment for you to live in while providing just the right kind of convenience catered to your needs. “
