Switch O is a customizable E-ink smart switch that enables users to control home appliances and to access their favorite internet services instantly. With the E-ink touch screen and removable sticker, users can create switches with various interfaces, targets and behaviors on the Switch O app and place them wherever they need. You can stick a switch in the kitchen with a button of purchasing sea salt and a button to order pizza delivery, or on the bedside with a slider to turn all lights off. Thanks to the low power consumption of E-ink screen, the battery of Switch O lasts over one-year and recharges quickly with wireless magnetic charger.
