Hedgehog can detect and prevent cybercrime across your entire home network. Inspired but its name and purpose; the Hedgehog is small, cute, friendly; but with sharp defensive edges - a subtle reference to the spikes of a Hedgehog. We felt that the Hedgehog needed to be visible, but at the same time; blend into the home environment. Due to this, we were heavily inspired by homeware design trends. This approach has, in turn, emphasized the cute and friendly aesthetic. Finally, the necessary ventilation and lighting have been hidden behind the flowing fins.
