At Smart Design I was the interaction lead for the design of a floor cleaning robot for Neato robotics, a client that understood the importance of building an emotional connection between people and products. With many groundbreaking features that would be new to consumers, the team focused on how it could best communicate what the product was doing in human terms through an expressive language of sound, light and movement.

This project was featured in the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum's 2014 Beautiful Users Exhibition.

We built several prototypes of the interface to fine tune the light behaviors and interaction.
