How it works?
After you have connected Melissa to your home Wi-Fi network, you will be able to send her commands and receive information about the current temperature and humidity at home through the Internet. When Melissa receives your command, she sends Infrared signals to your AC to change its settings.
Have the temperature you want when you come home.
No matter if you are out of town, at your villa, at work or stuck in traffic, you will have full remote control of your AC with Melissa.
Make your AC smart!
Even when it’s burning hot or freezing cold outdoors, you can always come back to the perfect home temperature thanks to Melissa. With its automatic geo-location function, Melissa will power up your AC well in advance of your return home.
But the company could still license out the technology to other phonemakers.
Google’s big plans for Project Ara might never pan out. According to Reuters, the big G has decided to shelve its modular phone initiative. Earlier this year, the company said it will be releasing a developer phone with interchangeable components in the fourth quarter of 2016 ahead of a consumer version scheduled for 2017. Alas, that might no longer happen.
Mountain View is reportedly suspending Ara “as part of a broader push to streamline the company’s hardware efforts.” It’ll be tough releasing a consumer version of a phone with interchangeable components, after all, even though the latest prototype isn’t as customizable as Motorola originally envisioned. The company will have to manufacture not just the units themselves, but also the modular speakers and cameras that people can swap out.
Those same sources said Google’s modular phone dream might not be completely dead, though. The company could still license out Project Ara’s technology to other phonemakers, which could eventually and finally release a version we can buy.
