Evaluation

This is a control device for use during live streaming. Requiring no expensive equipment, unlike conventional systems, this device and its dedicated smartphone app are all you need to singlehandedly achieve effortlessly polished live streaming. With simple button operation, the user can add captions, sound effects, video, and still images, while linking a second smartphone to the device enables the user to switch between cameras. What is more, these functions are incorporated into the product in an elegant and compact manner. We greatly admired this item as a product that empowers individual ability and creativity, as we enter an age in which these qualities will be increasingly important.
