maestro* / maestro*


maestro* is a gesture- and voice controlled unit, that
can interpret a fixed set of intuitive, multimodal com-
mands. They can be learned very fast and easily
by the user and offer the possibility to access ba-
sic functions of all networked devices with only one
overall and consistent interaction concept. While the commands performed by the user always remain the same, the actual action changes context-sensitively to the chosen device.

Devices can also send specific information directly to the controller, where they are displayed to notify the user of their current state.
