The O6 is an innovative rotary dial designed to provide consumers with a hands-free and eyes-free way of checking their smartphone devices while performing tasks such as driving. The O6 comes in two parts, with the first being a twistable disk and the second an app. The two pair together and allow consumers to use contextual actions to continue using their smartphone without distracting their focus.

The rotary disc is a small moveable dial that can be clipped onto walls or car steering wheels so that it can be used hands-free. The device pairs with a smartphone through an accompanying app and allows users to dictate commands to check emails, calls, social media postings and even change music. The device allows consumers to maintain their focus on other areas, while still connected to their tech devices.
