Black Cat - Smart Home Controller

  • Structure & CMF

    We used a matte black texture like a black cat that looks at the user from a distance but sometimes comes close and sympathetic. Also, it can be a natural harmony with space by using natural curve of the product.

  • Smart Home Controlling

    By connecting with other smart devices, Black cat controls them with user’ information received from the other devices. People can answer the phone, check their schedule, and turn on and off the light and home appliances. This AI-based controller enables people to interact with home appliances as communicating with real pets. 

  • Collaboration with Apple

    We started the project with the idea 'What if Apple made a smart device that shaped Siri?'
    So, we added an image of a black cat, like Apple's chic image, to a smart device and added friendliness.

  • Communicate with your Black Cat

    We designed a friendly-looking IoT product that resembled a cat. As an example of IoT, we designed the concept using Siri A.I. system.

  • Black Cat, IoT Home Controller

    Loneliness is developing into social problems with the increase of single-person households around the world.
    Communicating with pets is a good way to prevent disease caused by solitude. However, it can be hard to even think about raising a pet in the busy realities. 'Black Cat - IoT Home Controller' is a cat-shaped 'Black Cat' that communicates with the user and alleviates loneliness. And with IoT Smart technology, you can easily control your home appliance.

    In addition, the existing Smart Hub concept products are being released, but so far it has been a futuristic or unfriendly design. 'Black Cat' is a minimalist design that is also suitable for interior elements of the house. It was inspired by cats and can be an item of comfort and healing for the user who lives alone.
