In its maker’s own words, Knocki can “make any surface smart.” It is a central control for the growing proliferation of smart home devices out there, and it desires to make socializing with them easier and more intuitive. And it does it by making your walls, tables and other surfaces touch-sensitive. Envision tapping twice on the wall to turn your lights on, or dragging your finger across your kitchen table to lower the temperature: Knocki says its capable of controlling everything from televisions to smart blinds. You may even configure smart alarms to alarm you when someone leaves or arrives house.
The puck-shaped device hooks up to your dwelling’s internal Wi Fi and can be configured using its company app for Android and iOS. It can be screwed or stuck to the wall (you get some custom made 3M tape included) or put on a table or other surface. There’s no doubting the impressiveness of the demo that Knocki has put together – we’re expecting that it fits the reality when the device boats at the end of 2016. Knocki’s programmer, Knocki, increased more than ten times its aim on Kickstarter, so it is clearly going to be in demand.
