Single shake of the baton sets the mood of your living room at once!
IoT devices are so convenient that you already find lots of them in your room. Each one of the devices are very well thought to make our lifestyles better, but if there are too many of those working separately, you’ll find it pretty hard to make them under control…
What I wanted this time is to control those devices at a time to make the atmosphere that matches your certain feeling with one gesture. Just shake a baton like an orchestra conductor (or Harry Potter) to draw a certain shape in the air. The synced devices will respond to your gesture in a group. You know usually, for the romantic mood, you’ll need to play Barry White on the stereo a bit louder than usual, turn on dim light and the AC, etc., but with Takt, you just cast a spell with the stick.
Also, I didn’t want to make one of those remote controls that will eventually go missing under the piled magazines on the table. Takt stands up nicely so you never miss it!

Of course you can control one device to turn it on/off and adjust the volume, channels, etc.
Make the baton memorize your certain gestures. Your single shake of the baton sets the mood of your living room at once!
It’d be great if the home assistant robot used ‘body language’ with its comical movements of the electromagnetic floater. Seeing it nod while you’re talking to it would be nice and natural. People with hearing difficulties can also use this I guess.
I want a smartphone dock with a physical little hand.
It’d be nice if it could work as a real ‘stand’ and even walk!
And here’s a similar concept I thought of some time ago.
Wish there was a mirror that reflects my face just like an image in the touch screen that I can pinch zoom in & out and even swipe to rotate!

I made the concept and designed all the elements in this fun infographic movie for NII (National Institute of Informatics) a while ago. Really enjoyed the whole process of making this.
Miss the action of slamming down the receiver when I’m so mad I don’t want to talk any more on the phone. So how about a fast-slide-to-slam-down-receiver slider? It’d be nice if there was a slamming sound when I hang up. But I hope there won’t be a chance to get mad enough to use this..
