U by Moen
Moen approached us with an idea that had never been done before: create a digital shower experience that gives the user complete control over time, temperature, and how they begin their day.
Through our UCD process we helped Moen create a product that allows a user to wake up and turn on the shower from their phone with the shower knowing their personal preferences (temperature, etc). The shower will heat up to the desired temperature and then pause until you arrive, which helps decrease water waste. Once in the shower, users can restart the flow of water with the U by Moen shower controller on the shower wall. And then you take your perfect shower. There is also functionality to set a timer, so you don’t stay in the shower too long and it accepts dozens of presets, so the whole family can enjoy their personalized, perfect shower.
"Blink was pivotal in enabling us to uncover consumers’ true needs, wants and desires in a Wi-Fi connected shower experience. Because this is the first product of its kind on the market, we wanted to make it exciting for the user and Blink was instrumental in helping us achieve that goal."
--Sanj Moghe, Director of Strategic Innovation / Advanced Product Development
In January 2017 Moen released the U by Moen™ shower at CES to rave reviews.
