Korean Startup Presents DIY Internet of Things


SEOUL, Nov. 7 (Korea Bizwire) – The latest product by Korean startup Luxrobo brings IoT to a whole new level.

Unlike most IoT devices that come as a single complete product (i.e. robot vacuum), Luxrobo’s “MODI” allows users to turn electronics or household appliances of their choosing into IoT devices, using technology that the company calls Robotics of Things.

MODI is a set of some dozen modules, each the size of a quarter, with specific functions such as power, microphone, or Bluetooth. By assembling the right modules together, users can create devices that function in a certain manner. For example, you can attach a motor unit to a light switch and connect a microphone unit to the motor module to operate the switch via voice recognition.

I am interested in applying design thinking to the business. I love to code in Central Park on weekends and build something people love to use. You can reach me at sehwan@techforkorea.com
