With a simple double tap of the Sugr Cube, the Wi-Fi speaker is transformed from a high fidelity audio system into a powerful information and services portal powered by Alexa.

Welcome Muno and her…

Sugr team grew from 4 people in early 2014 to 10 engineers by the end of 2014. After the Chinese New Year, we had a new member. The holidsys was a 8 days. After that, when Frank came back to Sugr Studio as the first one in the new year, A cat followed him. He let her in and she never went away. So Frank named her “Muno”, which was Sugr Cube original name. It seems that Muno likes programs, most of the day time she stays with Frank and watch the keyboard man typing fast. She is so smart that on the third day she got to know where is the toilet. OK, on the 2nd day she peed on our couch. 🙁   On March 31st, we celebrated the anniversary of our current Sugr Studio. It’s been a year that we worked here, before that we worked at TechSpace .We climbed the TangLang Mountain in Shenzhen and then had a big meal. After we came back, guess what, Muno delivered 3 little kitties. They are so cute and so small. So now Sugr is a team of 14. We play music all the time, so these cute babies will grow with music. They do not have any names yet, welcome to name them. Just let us...

Setup Wi-Fi in 5 seconds

At Sugr, we had bad experiences to setup wireless speakers. Did you? For a Wi-Fi speakers, below steps are usually needed: 1. Power on the device and it will work as an AP or router (let’s say its SSID is “Painful Wi-Fi”); 2. Connect that “Painful Wi-Fi” using your PC or iPad; 3. Then open a browser and type in 192.168.1.1; 4. A webpage will be promoted to you and you need to input the home SSID and password; 5. After that, the device will reboot and try to connect to your home Wi-Fi. This link shows exactly such complex experience. However, at Sugr, we pursue simplicity! We invented the simplest way for Wi-Fi password set-up by using Sound Recognition Technology. Here’s the demo: Setting Wi-Fi password is JUST 5-second.
