Kakao Friends Home Kit Shows That Tech Can Be Functional & Charming

Great news for Kakao Friends fans and Korea's largest messenger app Kakao Talk – now there's a Kakao Friends home kit so you can have your favorite characters represented in your home. These memorable smart appliances include a humidifier, a lamp, an alarm clock, an air cleaner, a sensor, a ladder and a thermometer.

Innovative Nendo technology team with Kakao to bring home appliances to "serve as a bridge" between the digital world of Kakao and the devices right in front of you. The purpose of the companies was to bring the function of smart appliances (using an application, a remote control, etc.), but keeping the charm of Kakao friends. The application that goes with each product uses Kakao friends to guide you when you use the products and "the same colors were used in the icons and in the application interface connected to the home appliance, showing that hardware and software are linked to each other," he said. site.

Each product has a uniform platform of a "simple and analogous white bowl" and a "silicon icon" that is associated with each of the functions of the device. "The humidifier icon is vapor, the ladder is a cloud – which symbolizes the desire to be light – the lamp has a ray of light, the alarm clock has a small bird chirping an alarm, the air filter has a flower that floats in the wind, the thermometer it is expressed by the sweat produced by the fever, and the sensor is in the form of a periscope. "How strange and clever is it?

The scale literally makes you step on a cloud and has an accompanying app that gives you feedback from your Kakao friends based on your weight tools (which goes straight to your smartphone and is registered). I'm not sure how I feel about this, but I think it's similar to Lose It! an application that congratulates me on having burned all the calories of the week and that I lost weight. All my apps are missing are the adorable Kakao characters.

And this lamp is gorgeous and functional. It can be controlled by the application on your phone and you can change the color and brightness of the lamp or you can simply run your finger on the top of the dome. The humidifier can be controlled from anywhere, only with the help of the smartphone, and the aesthetics of the vapors is quite pleasant for the eyes and cute. The Air Purifier app has the pink Apeach character that matches right on your phone while you adjust the settings on the humidifier.

If you still can't get enough Kakao in your home (and who can blame you, they're pretty adorable), then you'll need to check out these Kakao-themed house organizing products, all from trash cans, air vents , household cleaning, laundry detergent and this amazing pair of wipers that could have come straight out of the Pippi Longstocking movie.

These products were a huge success at the CES convention, but they do not appear to have been sold in stores yet. So be on the lookout for them and follow them on the Kakao website for more information.
