Snips AIR is a network of devices collaborating to form a mesh of AI assistants. This enables your entire home to be seamlessly voice-enabled, while protecting your family’s privacy. As Snips AIR runs locally without any voice data being sent to the cloud, no-one can spy on you or your kids, keeping your home private as it should be.

AIR devices

Anyone can build an AIR device, either by implementing the underlying protocol, or simply by integrating the Snips voice assistant in their product. We are launching two new devices at Snips in 2019: a smart speaker (AIR Base) and a portable microphone (AIR Satellite).

AIR Base

The AIR base is a smart speaker with a powerful CPU to run skills locally. It comes packed with features, such as an HD speaker, a far-field microphone array and a powerful CPU. It is also fully customizable, running on Linux. The AIR base does the heavy processing of voice queries so that less powerful AIR devices can just forward their queries to it.

AIR Satellite

The AIR satellite is a battery-powered, MCU-based portable microphone. It enables you to control your devices with voice, wherever you are in your home. It is tactile and context-aware, enabling multimodal interactions such as dimming the lights in the room you are in by swiping up and down. Switching context is as simple as asking it to: “Hey Snips, switch to the music skill!”

Snips AIR Roadmap

The skill store and AIR mesh protocol are already mostly implemented and will be launched throughout the summer 2018. As for AIR modules, we plan on launching the AIR Base and AIR Satellites by Christmas 2019.
