This voice command hub is another device to demonstrate a moving away from tactile controllers. Consumers don't need yet another remote to operate this appliance or that –– nor do they necessarily want another app to manage the environment of their homes.
The Acciio Air was designed by BKID to operate with a more humanizing rapport: to simply listen to the user's requests and then to execute them. The disc-shaped device is without buttons, taking spoken instructions and offering feedback in the form of visualizations on its circular screen. The user can progress through different modes of the voice command appliance manager by taking visual cues until the air quality directions have been registered.
