You want it, We’ve got it - bt.tn can easily be mistaken for the Staples Easy Button but don’t get this interactive wireless mobile device mistaken with the office supply chain store. It’s not that easy. Connected to a cloud server, this device, which can be pre-order ed (for €69), is a physical, Internet-connected button (the bttn) that can be pressed in order to trigger a particular action.
This device can be used for a child to send an SMS text to their parents or an elderly person to push to send an SMS text alert to a relative if they are not feeling well or if they are.
The button pusher receives feedback on whether the command has been executed — currently this is visual feedback, via LEDs incorporated into the bttn.
Green for ‘command executed’
yellow for ‘wait’
red for ‘error’.
The startup says it’s also exploring adding voice as a way for bttn pushers to receive feedback, and also even for sending commands. Its key advantages include: simplicity of use, flexibility, low cost and ability to offer partner-branded devices and services.
