The Family of the Arts is a German studio that has reimagined the way people have been approaching smart homes. It has designed what appears to be a simple black dice that can be easily toted around from room to room in order to control nearby lamps, shades, thermostats and speakers contextually. Simply flip it to a particular side and adjust the touch controls as desired.

Dubbing its smart home device Cube, The Family of the Arts simply fits into the wall where a light switch would normally be in order to charge overnight when not in use. Founder Dario Jandrijic explains what makes Cube stand out as a viable home automation solution, "We all are permanently distracted from our real physical social lives. With Cube you are not distracted. You can use it without thinking about it."
