Product
Smart Plugs
These commercial-grade, wifi-enabled Smart Plugs allow business owners to control the energy consumption of plug-in electrical devices, all from the convenience of a computer or mobile device. Rated at 15 and 20 amps (for 110V and 220V respectively), these smart plugs control everything from low-load office equipment to high-load electrical heaters. Users can create 7-day power schedules to automatically reduce and control energy consumption, helping them to save money and reduce their impact on the environment.

Daedalus created the industrial design, which maintains a slim profile against the wall, and provided mechanical engineering services to the development of the outlet managers. Our Electrical Engineers reviewed the boards and provided recommendations for design changes to reduce heat generation.
Interface
Prescription Filling Interface
We have designed a minimal footprint robot for the retail pharmacy market (CVS, Walgreens, etc.) The robot can automatically fill prescriptions from over 200 stocked medications at speeds of up to 100 fills per hour.
Research
Firefighter SCBA Research
We visited six professional fire companies of varying sizes, observing and interviewing company members regarding the use, weight, and safety features desired of an ideal SCBA.
Engineering
High-Speed Pill Dispenser
Using the client's core pill counting technology, we provided full design and engineering services to create a system with a smaller footprint, greatly increased capacity, and important innovations such as the patented flex gate to control the flow of pills and a drawer interlock system to upgrade security.
