Ninja Blocks is the creator of the Ninja Sphere, the missing brain for your smart devices. Ninja Sphere learns from your behaviour, identifies your preferences, and manages your devices so you don't have to.
The Ninja Sphere incorporates a gesture interface and micro-location technology that accurately locates radios within the home. It is backwards compatible with the Ninja Block, a popular device and platform that supports 100s of third-party devices.
Ninja's should be effective and invisible as should the interface to your home.
