Many new products are accompanied with compatible smartphone software. If you’re tired of looking at your cluttered phone screen, swiping aimlessly through a never-ending list of apps, then this high-tech device might offer the perfect solution.
Tapdo is a fingerprint-reading gadget that manages multiple electronic devices with ease. Even though Tapdo also connects to a smartphone app via Bluetooth low energy (LE), its mission is to provide simplicity. By regulating other device-controlling apps on your phone, Tapdo acts as a centralized source of access.
According to Tapdo, this device introduces “one app to rule them all.”
The Tapdo app assigns certain functions to specific areas of the user’s dominant hand. For instance, the pad of the user’s ring finger could control the volume of a certain song, the middle region of that same finger could pause or play the musical piece, and the bottom region could skip to the next track. With the embedded fingerprint sensor, dozens of commands can correspond to various areas of the user’s hand.
The company hopes to soon launch a Kickstarter campaign in order to help with production finances. Watch how Tapdo works in the video below.
