Calm Shell / Environment Recorder & Simulator

Calm Shell
Calm Shell

Calm Shell is an IoT device which can record the environment around you and simulate it in your home.
When you are in a comfortable or peaceful environment, you can use it to record the background noise. Calm Shell will automatically generate a loop version and save the audio for later use. The temperature, humidity, location, and environment light data can also be recorded by the sensors. When you are back home, Calm Shell will connect to your home appliances and lighting system by Bluetooth. You can choose one of the environments you have recorded before to get into.
