Fabule is a family of hacktastic housewares in kit form, combining the satisfaction of DIY with the beauty of good design.
The household products we design are hackable, but with a gentle learning curve. We plan to offer basic kits with beautiful enclosures that are easy to assemble and will look great in your home. Our kits provide reliable electronic components for crafters to make their own, completely unique projects. If you’re inclined to modify the electronics themselves, both our hardware and software are open-source and documented, so you can hack our products at a deep level.
The first product on offer will be a modular, rechargeable lighting kit (we’re calling it luciole, which is French for firefly). Other prototypes in the works, but at earlier stages of development include: color-changing coasters, blue light therapy, dawn-simulating alarm clock, a joule-thief keychain flashlight, and moustache-shaped clothes hangers.
