Why build a company?

We want to put the user back in the center - here’s how.
Design and technology surround us and influence every aspect of our lives in both positive and negative ways.
Studies have shown that the simple act of a phone laying on the table while you talk to a friend can decrease the quality and depth of conversation. In contrast, background music can put people at ease and help form relationships. The objects we surround ourselves with directly impact our feelings, actions and health.
Technology has been making us sick - without us even realizing.
The smartphone is an amazing piece of technology. However, when we miniaturized computers and put them in our pocket, we didn’t plan for the smartphone to become the center of our lives. Smartphones realistically don’t address the needs of users in the home. A number of side effects result from the smartphone being placed in the center of a context it was never designed for - including distraction, decreased social interaction, decreased creativity, increased cognitive load and low accessibility.
There is another way – but we need to put humans back at the center.
When designing a piece of technology, the user must come first. It’s important to ask oneself – what can this product do for us? Attention to human psychology and care for well-being of the user must be a non-negotiable constraint that guides the design process. With emerging sensor and speech technologies, the possibilities for personal technology in the home are exploding – now we need to demand products that put the user’s well-being first.
