Ubi‘ is a tiny computer that plugs into a wall socket and responds to your voice commands. The always-on device can search the Internet for you, call a friend, or check your emails, offering a new way to use a computer. Ubi is hands-free and directly connects to the Internet through wi-fi. It can scribe, listen and analyze, and will either tell you the information you seek or indicate it through multi-color lights. The computer listens to its environment and senses it through sound, temperature, light, pressure, and humidity. It can record this information or use it to trigger events and communication.
