You can now preorder this block of wood that controls your smart home.

With a capacitive touch interface built into a piece of wood, the Mui Board 2 is a smart home hub with a touch of whimsy.

The new version adds support for Matter and can control your smart lights, locks, thermostats, and music as well as monitor your home’s energy use. You can write messages on it, and there’s a speaker and microphone for voice control.

The Mui Board has been about to launch since 2019, but the company says it’s coming for real this time. You can preorder it on Kickstarter for $499, with delivery in December 2024.
