PlaytabaseTM Partners with mnubo to Harness Smart Data from ReemoTM in the Clickable WorldTM

PlaytabaseTM, creators of ReemoTM technology, announced a new partnership today with mnubo, an innovative provider of smart data and analytics services for Internet of Things technology. Playtabase was inspired to collaborate with mnubo to allow Reemo users to better connect with their environments and expand the system’s benefits.

Reemo is a wearable device that allows users to control appliances and home automation systems with gestures rather than remotes or mobile phone apps. Reemo is worn as a bracelet and uses intuitive, motion-based commands to operate everything from lights and thermostats to home entertainment systems, and can even be used to guide a cursor across a screen like a traditional desktop mouse.

Playtabase CEO and co-founder Muhammad Abdurrahman was inspired to create Reemo after he witnessed his father struggle with everyday tasks following a series of debilitating strokes.

While the inspiration for Reemo was to make the physical world more accessible and interactive for individuals with disabilities or other mobility limitations, the wearable technology also creates a connected environment – the “Clickable WorldTM” – that a broader audience can appreciate.

The partnership will allow Reemo users to take advantage of personalized data analytics through mnubo’s cloud platform. The system will derive real-time smart data, allowing Playtabase to tailor its services to specific users and enrich its product development cycle.

“As we explore partnership opportunities, we’re identifying companies that can help us take the functionality of the Reemo system to the next level,” said Abdurrahman. “We’re excited by the ways mnubo will help us to create a more personalized experience for Reemo users.”

Playtabase has stated that it is committed to continued innovation, and the strategic partnership with mnubo will allow the company to further increase the functionality that Reemo brings to its users and the Internet of Things ecosystem.

“We are entering an era of smarter wearables; it is clear that data and analytics are going to play a crucial role in differentiating product offerings and enhancing consumer engagement – the goal is to personalize the wearable experience and help the user harness its true benefits,” said Frederic Bastien, CEO of mnubo. “mnubo’s data and analytics services for the Internet of Things helps innovative smart object manufacturers like Playtabase maximize the value from their object data and further empower their customers.”

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
