Meet iOn: a cool new way to control things around your home. iOn lets you control your electronic devices with a wave or your hand. It is controlled by a capacitive proximity switching system, but since its capacitive field is bigger and its range is wider, you don’t have to touch the surface of iOn to control your devices.
iOn can control any standard switch in your home. You can install it on a wall or under a desk or table. You don’t have to see iOn for it to work. Just hold your hand inside the field to interact with your switches.
iOn turns almost anything into a switch and makes your home feel smarter. Your IOn switches will enable you to control lighting, fans, and almost anything else for that matter thanks to its wireless capability and smartphone programmability. Hello home automation! This cool project is on Kickstarter.
