There are many ways designers have gone about creating an AI butler for the home and it can go in two completely different directions. Either you create something that captures the feel of the AI aspect, or you go with something that fits better with the homes decor. Mui decided to go with the second option and created one that sits on your wall, appearing like an appliance, but underneath it is a very competitive IoT device.
Mui comes with the appearance of a flat bar of wood, but by touching it you can find numerous controls and notifications that appear all of a sudden. This product allows you to control the temperature in the house, turn on and off lights, lets you read back messages, and even gives you weather updates with a graphic UI. Behind the wood panel is a large pixel based display in which contracts woods organic shapes, combined it creates a beautiful balance.
Most IoT devices are constructed using metal, plastic, and glass, so this design is very unique using wood. Honestly, it makes it look very down to earth and approachable. With its simplistic appearance it looks as though it is trustworthy and reliable, while still being completely capable as an AI bulter.
