“Our window is a magic frame, with pictures never twice the same” – Eleanor Hammond.
Before televisions crept into our lives, windows were where we consumed content. Whether it was the classroom window, where you’d stare out to see the kids playing on the grounds, or a window at home where you’d sit every morning having your cup of tea or coffee, or even the window through which you’d peek at your neighbors fighting, laughing, or having a party. The window has always been a magical portal, allowing us to look at people, animals, trees, birds, sunrises and sunsets, and the occasional rain-showers and snowstorms.
That window now overlooks a concrete jungle, and nobody looks out of it anymore. The scenery has been replaced by the gray and the mundane. Atmoph wants to change that. The Atmoph Window 2 isn’t really a window, but it behaves a lot like one. This smart high-definition display is capable of quite a few things, including playing from a library of a 1000 videos of sceneries that you’ll love. The View Store at Atmoph Window 2 consists 4K footage from Earth, seen from ISS to Amazonian rainforests to Parisian lanes, and from Hawaiian beaches to a view of the snowy peak of Mount Fuji, and its display with vividly accurate colors literally transports you to wherever you want… so no matter where you live, you can always have a view of the Eiffel Tower, or of the whitewashed neighborhoods of Santorini, Greece.
All of Atmoph’s videos are filmed using a 4K camera and a hi-end microphone, so its library of audiovisuals are completely the real deal. The Window packs a vibration speaker that allows the entire display to pump out audio. Atmoph even goes the distance and packs facial-tracking into its visuals, so the scenery shifts as your head shifts around the room, accounting for even parallax. The facial-tracking is courtesy a camera that also works as an indoor camera when you’re away, or when you want to keep an eye on your pets.
The Atmoph Window 2 is the perfect example of a product that’s absolutely unique, even though it uses technology and hardware we’re so familiar with. The scene-shifting smart-window also displays the time, weather, as well as your calendar tasks, keeping you in touch with reality as you stare for hours into the Finnish Laplands, and even comes with Google Home compatibility, allowing you to execute simple voice tasks like “Hey Google, show me Hawaii and play some Hawaiian music”. Not happy with just one Atmoph Window? You can pair as many as THREE Windows side by side to display the same image in continuity (even accounting for the space between individual frames).
The idea behind the Atmoph Window 2 is so simple, pure, and well-executed, it wins my heart. Giving you the ability to transform your interiors with a simple touch of a button or a voice command, the Atmoph Window 2 is a great way to escape the boring concrete life and live in the place of your choosing… perhaps your last holiday spot, or your hometown that you fondly miss, or a suitable scene to match the cuisine you’re eating (extremely effective on date nights, I’d assume). Oh, and if the library is missing something? You can directly beam videos of your own to the Window 2 too!

Join three Atmoph Windows together to make a synced Panorama. A fish can swim along from left to right, a boat can take off from the port from one side, and head out to see on the other.
See what’s going on in the world in real time. They plan on increasing the number of camera spots, so you can enjoy the ‘now’ from locations across the world.
Change your Frame
You can choose from high quality resin frames in five different colors, or a supreme quality timber frame that has been made to bring out the inherent warmth of genuine wood. This wooden frame has been custom made by Japan’s premier long-standing traditional wood furniture maker, Karimoku.
Maximizing the Potential of Everything a Window Could Be
Atmoph Window 2 has all the best qualities of a real window, with all the excitement of a smart window. By including various additional modules such as the Camera Module, Atmoph Window 2 can even do things that normal windows can’t.
With the Camera Module option, Atmoph Window 2 can track the position of your face using the camera, so it knows what angle you are looking at your window from. The scenery changes accordingly, making your view look even more real, more three dimensional.
With the Camera Module, you can check the inside of your home even when you aren’t there. Want to see how your pet’s doing? Your smart phone can turn into a small window that allows you to glimpse inside your home when you never could, up until now.
LED Light Module
Attach the LED Light Module and it’s just like having that light stream in. Not as bright as the sun, but just enough to help your pot plants grow. How about relieving that stress with an indoor garden?
Link to your Smart Speaker
You can also operate your Atmoph Window 2 through your smart speaker, change the view or adjust the volume. Don’t want to get off the couch? Got your hands fully tied? Just tell your Google Home ‘Hey, Google, change the view to Hawaii’, and the view will transform into a tropical paradise. Brighten your mood in just one moment.
Sound that Goes to the Next Level
An increase in the number of interior speakers from one to two also means you can enjoy more surround sound. Moreover, Atmoph Window 2 is equipped with a vibration speaker, turning the entire screen into a sound experience. From high pitched birds to the thunder of the Niagara Falls, everything sounds truly real.
Listen to your Favorite Music
With Bluetooth or Spotify, you can choose your playlist together with whatever view you like. Enjoy your “me time” to the fullest.
