Samuel Clay has created a new tactile smartphone remote that is flexible enough to be able to control almost anything in your smart home or Internet of Things projects.
Constructed from natural materials the mahogany smart remote controls can control Hue lights, smart devices, apps, and more. Watch the promotional video below to learn more about this pocket smart remote which is taken to Kickstarter and has already passed its pledge goal with still 23 days remaining on its campaign.
The smart remote is available to back via Kickstarter with pledges starting from just $49 and shipping expected to take place during November 2017.
Turn Touch is a remote control for the Hue lights, Sonos speakers, and other smart devices in your home. Turn Touch integrates with apps on iOS and macOS, giving you control of your music, videos, presentations, and more. Turn Touch also comes with a suite of its own apps, like a news reader, alarm clock, and fitness app. There’s never been a remote quite like this:
• Extraordinary design: This isn’t yet another plastic remote. Turn Touch is carved from solid wood and worked to a show-stopping, textured finish.
• Well connected: Turn Touch connects to most smart devices in your home that speak WiFi. And this is just the first version. Over time, there’s no telling what you’ll be able to control.
• Always ready: Turn Touch is always on, always connected, and always ready to take your breath away. Once you connect your Turn Touch via Bluetooth it stays connected and always available, even without the Turn Touch app actively running.
• Built to last: Not only will your Turn Touch stand up to drops and shock — its entire circuit board can be inexpensively replaced with newer, future wireless tech. You won’t have to buy a new remote every time Apple comes out with a new phone. And instead of flimsy plastic clasps, a set of 8 strong magnets invisibly hold the remote together.
