    Pros: 

    Light, beautiful to have out

    Cons: 

    Best if you have Hues or other smart devices first

    I was a backer of the Kickstarter campaign and received a mahogany Turn Touch. It's gorgeous and fun to have a remote to control our Hues that guests can use and play with. It's a really lovely home device.

  • Pros: 

    Beautiful, multitasking, easy to use and set up.

    Cons: 

    Apple only

    Very happy Kickstarter backer! I use this remote everyday to control the smart devices in my home. Love how it looks, and love the functionality.

    It’s great to not have to take out my phone and use a bunch of different apps when I’m going to bed or leaving the house. I use Turn Touch batch actions, so I just push one button and I can instantly control my hue lights, music, and smart plugs at once. Looks fancy and makes me feel fancy!

Hey everybody, I'm glad Turn Touch got to this point because that means it's shipping worldwide after last year's successful Kickstarter campaign. Turn Touch is a beautiful wooden smart home remote and pedestal. It’s designed to fit both your home and your hand. Use it to instantly control Hue lights, smart devices, Mac and iOS apps, and more. Turn Touch connects to most smart devices in your home that speak WiFi, including Sonos speakers and Belkin Wemo smart plugs. Turn Touch works with your Mac, iPhone, or iPad to control apps like iTunes, Spotify, and Keynote. Here’s a few more reasons to buy it: * Extraordinary design — This isn't yet another plastic remote. Turn Touch is carved from solid wood and worked to a show-stopping, textured finish. * Well connected — Turn Touch is always on, always connected, and always ready to take your breath away. Once you connect your Turn Touch via Bluetooth it stays connected and always available, even without the Turn Touch app actively running. And there's no delay, when you press a button the result is instant. * Built to last — Not only will Turn Touch stand up to drops and shock, its entire circuit board can be inexpensively replaced with newer, future wireless tech. You won't have to buy a new remote every time Apple comes out with a new phone. And instead of flimsy plastic clasps, a set of 8 strong magnets invisibly hold the remote together. Plus it’s entirely open source. And good open source projects benefit from good documentation. Here is a five part series on how Turn Touch was built: https://medium.com/@samuelclay/e...

Sam sent me a first generation turn touch when it was back on Kickstarter. I’ve loved mine - and my husbands only complaint is it doesn’t work with his phone (android coming soon). Friends have also asked about it when they come over. I’m excited it’s generally available and for the pedestal!

@samuelclay is a maker who supports his projects for the long haul (Newsblur has been going strong for 8+ years), and has managed to make his work open source and profitable. Turn Touch looks like it will have a long, bright future.
