From a smart bottle to a smart coaster

 

We thought a smart bottle was the best solution to our challenge. But we failed. Long story short, after a series of user tests and iterations, we proved our initial concept wrong before conceiving ÔIA.

Fail. Fail many times. Fail early. Rethink. Redesign. It is part of the innovation process.

We went through a series of prototypes, models and components to test the manufacturability and functionality of our proposal. It took incredible engineering and design teamwork to take ÔIA into mass production.
