Jacob Kastrenakes at The Verge:
In one of CES’s stranger announcements, Nanoleaf has introduced what’s essentially a giant 12-sided die that controls your home. You just set the die down, and it’ll set your smart home gadgets to some predetermined configuration.
I love this product announcement. It is quintessentially CES. It’s kind of baffling, not actually shipping, and yet brilliant and cool in some ways. I think the general idea of using the positions of real-world objects to control devices has some merit, even though this one is kind of bananas.
