It will recognize you, it will recognize your taste in music and it will play the music of your taste. Smart up your home with the intuitive Prizm, the winner of 2016 CES innovation award in the 'smart home' category.
Meet Prizm, a self-customizable music player that captures Wi-Fi and Bluetooth signals from smartphones and fitness trackers, to identify users (may it be you, your partner, your friends or your family) in the room, including their music preferences and the current mood. Using a unique algorithm, it then plays the most suitable songs, so be sure that everyone in your room, including you, will absolutely love the selected playlist.
The device actually learns with time by gathering experience. Each time that you interact with Prizm, it memorizes your choices. If you like to listen to loud rock songs in the morning and smooth jazz in the evening, Prizm will remember that and use the information to custom-tailor itself to your music habits. Being the just-press-play kind of device, it's very easy to use and can be plugged to any speakers (3.5mm Jack, optical or Bluetooth).
"We believe that the listening experience is deeply linked to the context. We do not want to listen to the same music when we are doing housework for example or when we we have friends over than when we are alone or with our better half," explains Pierre Gochgarian, Prizm's CEO.
Prizm was created with the help of a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter back in Ocotber 2014. A Paris-based start-up raised more than $70,000 in four days, with a total of $161,000 securing the official launch of the product.
