Kiwi at heart, with global smarts.
We created Mr Humfreez to help Kiwis keep an eye on the health of their home. A digital thermometer/hygrometer would have done a similar job, but we wanted to make something that was smart and sustainable in equal measure.
The technology behind Mr Humfreez is the brainchild of Professor David Correa and his team at the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada.
They developed the programmable hygroscopic horns that allow Mr Humfreez to respond when the air gets too humid. And they helped formulate the special ink that makes his face change colour when it gets too cold.
Like many of us, Mr Humfreez is a global citizen with a Kiwi heart. He doesn’t go anywhere without his fluffy coat of NZ made merino wool.
