Xenia Wedel, the PR guru at Tapdo – writes to ask: Can we get together for a quick demo at CeBIT? Here’s what she says:
Tapdo (www.tapdo.io) is a smart button that lets you control technology with single-touch, personalized biometric interactions.
If you missed the coolest gadget at the MWC or WTS, no worries, Tapdo is coming to CeBIT. Tapdo is the ultimate wearable gadget that enables rapid, no-look control of music, smart home, and more. Ideal for driving, too. To see how easy this is, please check out the demo video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B4ZTDRGxoJM
Using a unique fingerprint sensor, Tapdo allows you to assign specific functions to different parts of your fingers, you can control music, dim smart lights, and more. Powered by Bluetooth LE and equipped with vibration feedback for a seamless, intuitive user experience, this ingenious button can be clipped on virtually anywhere for easy access, or worn on a slim wristband.
Today, fingerprint readers are commonly used for authentication purposes, and ignore other parts of the hand besides fingertips. No device has yet captured the full potential of fingerprint sensors for biometric interaction using the entire hand. While the smartphone has acted as the main controller for smart products, it’s not the ideal interface for every action; people want an easier, sleeker shortcut for controlling their many apps and devices.
Enter Tapdo, which not only includes authentication capabilities, but enables rapid, discreet interaction with no-look control. It’s perfect for smartphone power users and anyone looking for smart home convenience — plus it complies with the one-touch rule for phone usage while driving.
On Match 16, the device is launching its Kickstarter campaign to allow users to control their favorite apps and devices with just the tap of a button. Tapdo will be available on Kickstarter starting at $99. Backers can expect to receive their devices, including battery and rubber wristband, in September 2017.
