Technologies in internet-connected devices have seen rapid advancements since the 2010s. As these products mature, they are being adopted widely by the general public. Everything from voice assistants like the Amazon Echo to DIY project cores like the Raspberry Pi have gradually accustomed us to a world that is increasingly more connected.

In his 2014 book Enchanted Objects: Innovation, Design, and the Future of Technology, MIT Media Lab instructor David Rose envisions a future where we interact with smart technology not only through the cold glass interface of smartphones and tablets, but more intuitively through other ways like how characters from fantasies and fairy tales use magical objects.

We here at share Rose’s vision of a future full of these enchanted objects, which enable us to live better, work more efficiently, and travel more safely in our homes, workplaces, and cities. With more than a decade of experience in consumer electronics, we aim to bring you information, guides, and products that help you achieve a more enchanted lifestyle.
