GyroPalm was initially made Dominick build a wireless wearable robotic-controller for his friend. Today, GyroPalm is an affordable, reliable, and open-source system which let anybody control electronic devices, appliances, computers, and robotics with a flick of the wrist. GyroPalm is the first wearable device on the market that offers long-distance low-latency control over smartphones, computer, IoT devices, appliances, and even robotics.
Kleidoma was initially made when avid inventor and programmer Dominick Lee arrived at Purdue university. Due to the inconvenience of carrying and using keys to lock and unlock the door, he wanted to create a SmartLock solution – but not just any solution – a solution that must be installation-free, rechargeable, and work with more than just a smartphone. After spending several months developing numerous prototypes and hundreds of test-builds, the Kleidoma SmartLock was born. Meanwhile, he worked with some talented individuals to refine this project into a great product that would allow us to turn any door into a SmartLock in seconds.
