Its creators explain a little more about the hardware and its inspiration.
Despite hundreds of ways to communicate, we aren’t communicating well with the people we truly want to hear from and share with, our closest friends and family. We want to reverse this trend.
OrbMi is a personal voice messaging system for our closest friends and family. What makes it unique is that it’s about messaging convenience and control for both the sender and receiver. It’s a bridge to better connections with our network of 2 or 20 loved ones, not another feed for our network of 200 contacts to skim through or interrupt our day.
New messaging options focus on one click text sends, creative emojis, or maybe seconds of a voice clip….but these aren’t really what’s missing in our messaging options. We don’t share as often as we could because we worry it might be an inconvenient time to alert their phone, or if we do share, we downgrade our message to a short text or tweet to minimize any perceived interruption. These are the problems OrbMi solves….the problems that keep us from staying close and connected with those that should matter to us the most.
At it’s heart, it’s about better communication at the perfect time, every time. It allows us to share more freely and openly with our loved ones without inconvenience or disruption. With OrbMi, it’s ALWAYS a good time to call.
