Busy lifestyles rarely slow down, even while watching television. Some constantly flip through channels, use mobile devices, catch up on email and lose the TV remote. Keiko introduces a different atmosphere: a relaxed and simple way to watch television. Inspired by the peaceful navigation of whales as they move through the depths of the ocean, Keiko offers a new experience that allows surfing through channels with a subtle touch. Just like the glow of the television, Keiko radiates its own soothing light when the room is getting dark. It responds with the song of a humpback whale when you want to know where it is. Read Less

Abstract
 
Busy lifestyles rarely slow down, even while watching television. 
Some constantly flip through channels, use mobile devices, catch up on email
and lose the TV remote.
 
Keiko introduces a different atmosphere: a relaxed and simple way to watch television. Inspired by the peaceful navigation of whales as they move through the depths of the ocean, Keiko offers a new experience that allows surfing through channels with a subtle touch. Just like the glow of the television, Keiko radiates its own soothing light when the room is getting dark. It responds with the song of a humpback whale when you want to know where it is.
