Story behind the app

At Kiwi, we believe technology should be really simple. Our experience in design has led us to build a motion recognition app for Android wear, that is simple and fun.

We've been spending our nights and days on recognizing any motion, on any person, on any device. So naturally when the Android Wear watches came out we needed to share our technology with the world.

We built this app so you could dismiss those annoying callers with just a wave of your hand.
