Will you want Soap for your home? I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. Soap is the name of a new gadget for the home designed to help you connect and control all of your other gadgets. Co-founder and Chief Technology Officer Alex Jones puts it this way…
“It’s a tablet, mixed with a router, mixed with a home automation hub all into one device. It’s meant to really unify all devices. It connects to different frequencies…so ZWave and Zigbee to WiFi to Bluetooth. So we’re trying to just make one source, one place to manage all the wireless devices. It does your laptops, your tablets…everything connects to it.”
There are controls parents can use to safeguard kids online. Soap is available for pre-order through Indiegogo with different models available starting at about a hundred dollars. There’s more info at imsoap.com. You can find us with archives, interviews and more at BootCamp.com. I’m Fred Fishkin.
