About

The idea for MyHue originated from my work environment. Our office is primarily one room with a large number of employees sharing the space. As the number of employees using smart phones increased, the number of audio notifications has grown tremendously. We all constantly hear everyone's beeps, music, engines racing, and other notification sounds as the endless texts, emails, weather alerts, and alarms come in throughout the day.  

I thought it would be much better to have a visual display on my desk and not need the audio. I knew my coworkers would be much happier as well. Using MyHue, each time I receive a notification, MyHue displays a color preselected for that particular notification. With my settings, blue means I have a text, red is a new e mail and white is a phone call.

I realized MyHue would be great in many other environments. My wife works in a very quiet office where the sound of an incoming text is a distraction to others. She also spends a lot of time with customers on the phone.  She does not want customers to hear her cell phone notifications being heard in the background.  MyHue sits on her desk and she instantly knows she has a notification without disturbing anyone. The same goes for a noisy environment. When I am in my wood working shop, I cannot hear an incoming text or call, but MyHue lets me know I have one.

I took the idea a step further and created multiple MyHues.  This works great when I am at home. If my phone is in the bedroom, I will receive a notification when I am in the living room, kitchen or back patio - anywhere I have a MyHue.

The MyHue app is in Beta on Google play store join beta testing here https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/myhue.  MyHue is for Android devices running version 4.3 and above.

    The MyHue is available in two sizes with several lens designs to select from.We are also offering customization on the lenses of up to 15 Characters.You can add your company name, your name, initials, etc.This is at no additional charge.As we proceed, additional lens designs will become available.We value your input.Give us your ideas, and we will see if we can make it happen.Additional designs will be added periodically.When the project is funded, you will have the option of 3 available lenses including the customization option with each MyHue purchase.

 The MyHue with charger is currently available in one style.We will be adding additional designs as we progress.

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge I will face is receiving the raw material to be able to produce the product to meet the estimated delivery.
