Ompi / Communication device for instant messaging


Ompi is a communication tool that integrates non-smartphone users into the digital community of family and friends. Ompi enables elderly people, but also children and people with limited motor skills, to communicate via instant messenger services such as Whatsapp, Telegram, Facebook Messenger, etc. Ompi enables users to receive multimedia messages and send voice messages to instant messenger chats. To receive pictures and videos, Ompi can be connected to a television. The various channels can be accessed by simply placing a contact figure on the surface. Additionally, a voice guides the user through the process.
