Bixi is an ultra-portable companion that senses your in-air hand gestures and commands the devices you wish to control. Bixi commands smartphone Apps (Spotify, iBooks, Youtube, etc), LifX bulbs, Bose Soundtouch Speakers, GoPro, tablets and other Internet of Things devices, allowing users to keep interacting with their smart objects without putting their current activity on pause.. Bixi tracks your natural, intuitive hand gestures, processing the movement into meaningful action that is sent wirelessly to the device being controlled. Bixi works via Bluetooth Low Energy protocol and the Bixi App connects Bixi to other devices based on Wi-Fi or other protocols. You can control multiple actions of two apps or devices at the same time with Bixi. For example, you can be on your bike with Bixi on ‘Music’ & ’GoPro’ profiles and control both your songs and your GoPro with only gestures. Other such examples are: Music & Lights control (Home) Reading & door-lock control (home) GoPro & Music control (on bike) Phone/SMS & Music control(In car) Switch between multiple preset profiles for each room by just waving your hand!

Thank you @kwdinc for hunting Bixi. I am the founder of Bixi and am happy to see Bixi featured on producthunt. Bixi was born to allow users to keep interacting with their smart objects without putting the current activity on pause. Some like- - Reading a recipe while cooking with hands deep in dough - Getting distracted while driving due to the phone / infotainement/ navigation Supporting 8 intuitive gestures to start with, Bixi can control your smart devices with a just a wave of your hand. Our team would be happy to know your views and answer your questions. Product hunters, join the conversation!! Cheers, Vijay

Great product guys! @pfanis yes, seems like KS is down right now. Will try to check it out later. I was wondering what the differences / advantages to nuimo by senic are (https://www.senic.com)? Good luck on the campaign!

@louis_sugar Seems working normally. Please refresh and check. The smart-home centric Nuimo is a well built device as well with touch controls and basic low-height gesture controls that needs to be activated with a touch. Bixi fits well in the home and also on bikes & cars and is always On to sense the hand upto 25-30cms. We built it this way because when the hands get occupied/ dirty and then a user feels the need to control, he should do it directly without touching anything. Bixi enables it all while retaining a month of battery life.
