Australian Startup Omylis’s Mission Is Creating Objects Making Your Life Simple, Missmo Is One Of Those Objects.
When I was growing up, our house had a small bulletin board in the kitchen. That’s where mom and dad kept all the important family notes and reminders. Truth be told it was a pain in the butt. We could never find paper, index cards or pens, and forget trying to find any of those things in a kitchen today. Many families use white boards on the refrigerator, some still use old fashioned calendars. In this technology driven age there hasn’t been a digital version of the family communications hub, until now.
An Australian startup called Omylis, which stands for “objects making your life simple” has created Missmo, the world’s first digital, connected sticky note. The easy to use, connected, e-ink display device is far beyond a digital sticky note. It’s the ultimate hub for family communication.
Missmo connects to a GSM network and is a great way for families to stay in touch with one another, especially when some of the family members may not have smart phones yet. Family members can send an SMS text message to the Missmo device that will sound off an alert for all of the family to see. For instance if dad is going to be arriving home late from work he can simply text the Missmo instead of having to do a group text where he may miss something. Mom can easily text the Missmo to let the baby sitter know it’s time to preheat the over. Kids can text the Missmo to let their parents know they’ve arrived at a friend’s house and the phone number where they are.
Missmo is also great for older relatives like grandma and grandpa. With a connected Missmo the kids or the grandkids can send quick messages to say “I love you” or reminders about family dinners. Speaking of reminders, Missmo’s easy to configure home screen is customizable. Family’s can easily add calendar reminders for doctor’s appointments, medication or soccer games. These reminders can be read like a schedule or calendar or come with an alert to remind the whole family.
Missmo stays true to Omylis’s mission of making life simple. All you have to do is take it out of the box, charge it for a brief time and make sure it’s on your GSM network and voila. A simple tutorial will have your family using Missmo as part of their everyday lives, instantly. Missmo’s e-ink display means that it can go nearly two months before it needs a charge, that ensures you never miss an important message again.
You can see the simplicity of the well designed Missmo at CES 2018 in Las Vegas, January 9-12th in Eureka Park, booth #53066 and online at omylis.com
