Even the best-designed smart home apps can feel a little lifeless compared to clickable light switches and spinnable thermostats, which is why a German studio is working on a home automation cube that is a tactile alternative to the smart home apps of today.

This is simply called a Cube, the device is a small black cube that you can carry around your house, place on any surface, and use it to control nearby lamps, shades, thermostats, and speakers contextually.

”We all have arrived at a point where we all use displays and GUIs all day,” explains studio founder Dario Jandrijic. “We all are permanently distracted from our real physical social lives. With Cube you are not distracted. You can use it without thinking about it.”

Features of Home automation cube

  • The interface works through a combination of just three gestures. You tap Cube on the table to turn it on so that each blank side reveals its function in a backlit icon.
  • When you flip the cube such that the desired function you want sits on top, such as music.
  • By twisting the cube left or right, the controls can be throttled. So a twist left would turn the music down, and a twist right would turn it up. Or if lighting was selected, a twist left would dim a lamp, while a twist right would brighten it.
  • Cube could become location-aware so that it might simply mix and match different functions depending on the room you’re in.
  •  It provides an effortless transition from macro and micro level control, all built within a gesture rather than a deep onscreen menu system.

Is there a Catch?

Of course, there’s a catch. The total number of functions a Cube can handle is inherently limited to the six sides of a cube. What makes that one tool so useful is its ability to respond to specific contexts, for instance,

on a kitchen table, Cube might control the light only above that table, while near a lamp in the living room, it might control only that lamp. Yet it’s not constrained to only working in context. Because with a flip, Cube can go from controlling the light in one room to the temperature of your whole home.

Artificial Intelligence And Its Impact On Home Automation

It’s easy to see how Cube could become location-aware so that it might simply mix and match different functions depending on the room you’re in, like

  • A cube placed in your bedroom would know to make one side an alarm, while a Cube in your living room would dedicate one side to your home theater’s surround sound.
