NEEO - The Smart Remote Designed To Control Everything Under Your Roof

With all technological advances in the past years, our homes become more and more intelligent every day!
But most of these gadgets that harness the power of artificial intelligence and allow us to manage our homes easier and make them more fun, also need to be controlled in a way or another, so a new niche seems to configure for hardware and software manufacturer.

Until now, each individual home automation device used to have its own controller (either an individual remote, an iPhone or Android app or even phone and SMS switches), just like 25 years ago when every gadget in our living room had it’s own remote! Remember that? But times changed and the universal remote (read Logitech Harmony) was invented, ready to allow you to control all your gadgets from one main unit.

Well, history repeats, isn’t it? The NEEO Smart Remote is designed to do for your home what the Harmony did for your living-room – aggregate all controllers under one main unit and help you easier manage all your home automation devices.

The NEEO system comes with two units – the brain and the controller. The brain is a solid aluminum & acrylic glass unit which is able to connect with over 30,000 gadgets via IR (infrared) – the technology used in all classic remote controllers, Bluetooth, WiFi, 6LowPAN, ZigBee, Thread and Z-Wave protocols – basically most remote controller technologies available on the market. Additionally, a learning feature can teach the remote new commands in case the device you want to hook up it’s not in the internal database.

The Controller unit of the NEEO comes with a high definition display designed to help you control all the devices connected to the Brain, an array of sensors which can identify users and load personal profiles, activate and deactivate parental control as well as SOS activation in case you misplace your remote. The NEEO system can also be fully controlled by dedicated iPhone and Android apps.

The NEEO Thinking Remote is in project stage at Kickstarter (already reached it’s funding cap) and you can secure a kit for $219. The delivery is set for May 2015.

RollTop Laptop Concept -Coolest Rollable Future Laptop Concept

Presented as a concept roll up laptop back in 2011, the RollTop 2.0 still still looks cool enough to make me want one ASAP!
The device was created by the German design shop Orkin Design and presents a multi-device that changes shapes based on the task it needs to accomplish. The RollTop 2.0 can be rolled up, just like a Yoga mat, for easy transportation, can be used as a 13-in laptop (the bottom part of the device transforms in a virtual keyboard and tracking device) and a 17-in tablet with stylus or touch control or an external screen for other PC’s!

ALSO CHECK the Obento Note Modular Laptop Concept and the Fujitsu LifeBook 2013 Multi-Device Laptop Concept we featured earlier.

The RollTop 2.0 concept sports a flexible OLED screen which allows the device to transform from transportation mode to laptop, tablet or external screen and a center column which holds most connectivity options such us USB and LAN ports, an internal speaker, a webcam, the rechargeable battery as well as a power adapter for charging the device. While not in use, the RollTop wraps around the center-column for easy transportation and storage.

The initial RollTop concept was presented back in 2009 and it was updated to the 2.0 version in 2011. Unfortunately, since than, there are not many news about this cool project. Check out the videos in the post about the first and second versions of the RollTop and let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
