Cujo

Introducing CUJO, a smart learning Internet security device designed by innovation design firm Matter. Cujo is built to protect all connected home devices against hacks, malware and viruses. Playing cheekily off of the infamous rabid canine, the designers were inspired by the idea of a pet dog that fervently protects us and our home. It is a constant but benign presence, until the moment it is needed to work. Most of the time a pet dog is sleeping. Its eyes are restful, ears down, just humming along. Only when alerted by an anomalous activity does it become alert. Its demeanor changes from dormant to aware: eyes wide, ears at attention, focused and alert. It may bark to scare off an impending threat or it may leap into action. CUJO was designed with this character in mind. The physical form is intentionally sublime and takes in the semantics of familiar household vessels.
