About

 
 

Motion is a magical way to interact

Magicians uses the magic wands to get supernatural power beyond just using their hands, Moband is your magic wand, making you a magician at home and outside of it. You don’t need to make any alteration to the appliances. Moband has 10 preset default motions which allow you to control all home appliances in just a few simple steps.

Custom motions, your own magic

Are the 10 default motions not enough? Yes, we think so too and that’s why Moband is designed with the ability to learn new motions. New motions and their functions can be defined by the user through an app on your smartphone. For example, you may define the motion of a heart shape to turn off the TV and turn on the CD player and stereo to play a beautiful song at the same time. How sweet is that?

Deep learning helps build your own motion model 

You will discover that the more you use the Moband, the less mistakes it makes. Over time the accuracy greatly improves. The deep learning capacity of Moband is able to accumulate data of your motions to build your personal motion model. There will be less and less misunderstandings between you and your Moband.  

Moband provides open source learning and setting functions

Aside from home appliances, Moband is able to learn, through the app, the infrared codes of other devices, including infrared toys & bulbs and more. Moband also provides Bluetooth interface and developers’ kit for professional users to develop more functions.

Moband’s streamline design exemplifies ergonomic technology. The top-bottom weight distribution is 0.3:0.7,which tremendously decreases muscle and joint fatigue when using the Moband.

Detail

Designed with precision, the oxidized alloy curved body of the Moband provides the best ergonomic experience.

The device’s name will appear on the OLED screen, letting you know which device the Moband is controlling. The touchpad provides you device selection and the possibilities of defining your own motions. With the combination of the screen and touchpad, you will able to add as many as 15 devices to your Moband!

We have spent over one year and all our investment to develop Moband. We want the world to see what we have done and we hope our partners can see a rewarding result. That’s why we need your support on Kickstarter. We will use the funds collected to develop the best motion detection system and more cool applications and products, and of course put Moband into mass production and make the shipment on time. 

Moband is developed by a group of young adults who are optimistic about the interaction between human beings and machines, called Intelligent Wave. We are from different corners of the world. Some of us were graduated from University of Toronto, University of Ottawa and York University, and some used to work for great companies, such as IBM, Abbott and China Mobile. With a shared dream, we devote ourselves in the research of motion based human-machine interaction. We believe man and nature are two sides of a coin and human being and machines will eventually merge into one. Starting with motion detection interaction, we hope to give machines the ability to understand human beings and to give man a third hand to take more and better control of life through our researches in multi-sensor fusion, neural network and deep learning.

We sincerely thank every person who supports us and other startup teams on Kickstarter. Because of your support, the surface of the Earth becomes rounder, the darkness of the universe gets brighter and we are closer to the truth. Let us hope that miracles occur one after another. 

Risks and challenges

Moband consist of a large number of parts and components. Its requirements for precision make assembly and production more difficult. We will continually optimize design to reduce these difficulties.

Moband’s inertia sensor-based motion capturing and detection are what we are proud of but is the most difficult part to realize. We are optimizing our algorithms continuously to ensure better accuracy and faster response time.

Moband’s Bluetooth port allows professional developers to connect to Bluetooth devices. We are working hard to optimize our developers’ kit and make it easier to use.
