French startup UrbanHello has launched a new smart device at CES and on Kickstarter. ‘Home Phone’ is an easy-to-use cordless telephone designed for the whole household.

The inbuilt 360° speaker offers HD sound for clear conversations and it can automatically switch to hands-free mode to transform itself into a loudspeaker when required.

The handset is 100% compatible with any standard DECT-GAP base station and with any advanced internet gateway with the CAT-iq standard. The simplistic keyboard features just the essential buttons and two discrete OLED displays located on the top and bottom of the handset only self-activate when the phone is in use to reduce power consumption.

The device is available on Kickstarter in a range of colors for a pledge of $119. Check out the campaign video below to learn more about the phone:
