Eye expressions & Customization
Ulo communicates through eye expressions. A webpage allows you to customize eyes color, shape and size to match your interior and your taste. No logos or icons are displayed on the screens, but you instantly know what Ulo has in mind.
For instance, when the battery is low (under 10%) Ulo is tired,
Ulo blinks when you take a snapshot,
Its eyes follow your movements and Ulo squints when someone is watching live video.
Random animations add that extra spark of life which makes Ulo unique.
Eye expressions are possible thanks to new round LCD screens originally manufactured for next-generation smartwatches.
In everyday use, with eye expressions, Ulo needs to be recharged every 2 days. Of course you can also leave Ulo plugged in all the time on a USB port.
On a full charge, Ulo can last 2 days in Alert Mode and 4 hours in Live-Stream.
Ulo works with 3 rechargeable NimH batteries (LR06) minimum 1900 mA. These rechargeable batteries are not provided but can easily be found in any supermarket.
You don't need to remove the NimH batteries to recharge them. Only plug Ulo to a power source.
It is a very simple way to check what is going on in another room. Ulo streams directly on a secure webpage or its mobile app.
