Just like folding a plain piece of paper into a perfectly balanced crane, we believe the most elegant solutions are born out of simplicity.
ORII began as a few friends from HKUST's MBA program, working long nights in coffee shops in search of ways to make smartphones without screens.
The idea for ORII all began with our CEO Kevin's father, Peter. Peter is visually-impaired and requires screen-free alternatives to interact with technology. Using smartphones can be difficult for him as they are screen-based, touch-based devices so we experimented with all kinds of technology that could help us make screen-free ways of using our phones.
About 21 prototypes later, we created the ORII that you see today. ORII has evolved so much you can barely recognize the very earliest concepts. But you’ll still find us experimenting and digging into hardware, because there’s always so much more to learn!
