Convoluted Kettle / smart home design

Convoluted Kettle
Convoluted Kettle

Intellectual interaction was added into our kettle as we more concerned about the bond and interactivity between products and users which made this kettle so different from the other traditional pots. We insist that an intellectual product should understand its user better than himself and provides a customized service. By linking to mobile phone, Convoluted Kettle could figure the most suitable water temperature based on an intellectual algorithm which could analysis your personal information like real-time weather, humidity and your heart rate.
