The Objectifier has the potential to revolutionize the still nascent smart home industry. Rather than controlling one's domestic object with the flip of a switch or even with voice commands, the Objectifier lets users control their object with any gesture or movement that they choose, creating a fully automated set of household electronics.

The device itself is a small, pleasingly minimalist camera that has a receptacle for any electronics. By plugging an object into the Objectifier, that object's on/off switch is now controlled by it. The Objectifier connects to a simple app that allows users to train it, with the camera recognizing movements to activate or deactivate the object it controls.

With the Objectifier, users can make their bedside lamp turn off when they pull up the covers and turn on automatically when they rise in the morning, or have the kettle automatically shut off when one picks up their tea mug. There is virtually no limit to the potential controls.
