The Orbit smart speaker provides users with a natural communication experience, since it does not need a wake-up command to start a conversation, but by itself shows the will to communicate. The device uses LED lights to indicate that it has valuable information to share. If the user is not nearby at that moment, the information is stored, with an LED stack light circling around the top of the speaker to express that it is “waiting” for the user. The LED colours indicate what kind of information is available: blue is for daily life issues, green for user interests and purple stands for calendar-related content.
