The Story...

'Tis the age old conflict: a man, asserting his manhood, chooses to keep the toilet seat up, much to the displeasure of his womanly companion. Decades of fighting have ensued from these continuing disputes, claiming thousands of casualties on both sides. This bitter conflict prompted us to create...OPEN SESAME!

The Solution...

We created Open Sesame to put an end to this ruthless war, and save innocent lives for generations to come. With but a simple gesture, every appliance in your bathroom can be controlled, from raising and lowering the toilet seat, to the advanced electrical equipment populating the porcelain throne. Our solution, built around the Myo platform, intends to add the smart functionality to the ever-versatile Myo Armband. The world is shifting towards wearable technology, and the Myo Armband provides a premium medium for gesture control. As the technology becomes stronger and more affordable, such a tool will become a staple in modern life to simplify tedious tasks. Our functional script provides a sneak-peek into the possibilities garnered by these next-generation technologies.

The Audience...

The aim is to make a complete hands-free experience, to improve sanitation and life satisfaction, as well as to prevent toilet-based disputes. Our target audience is anyone who uses bathrooms, so essentially everyone. Current hands-free toilets sell for nearly $200. As Myo armbands become more widely used, the overall cost for adding this script is only a fraction of the price, making it an smart, economical decision.
