Hale Orb, the elegant spherical remote lets you and your family browse photos and videos on a TV. Once receiving new content from social media, it will also notify you with glowing. Sounds cool? Let’s continue checking.
The Hale Orb is a unique and easy-to-use remote control that measures 80 x 80 x 80mm. As we can see from the images, the remote sports a portable, spherical form factor, and the wooden exterior not only delivers gorgeous natural wood grain, but also provides a comfortable and firm grip.
Using a custom computer stick with HDMI connector, Hale Orb wirelessly communicates with your HDTV, and the computer stick stays in your local network. When you send images or videos from your smartphone to Hale Orb, the spherical remote will light up to notify other family members at home. Just rotating the remote, they can easily view the photos and videos.
Furthermore, Hale Orb also works with your social media including Facebook, Instagram, Google, and Dropbox. It will automatically scan for update and bring new photos and videos to Hale Cloud. Moreover, using particular hashtags and multiple accounts, you can choose which photos can be shared or which members can check some specific content.
The Hale Orb has been available for preorder on Indiegogo (flexible crowdfunding goal). You can pledge $139 to preorder the remote with a custom computer stick. It would be shipped in December 2017.
