As a kid, I remember watching the Disney movie ‘Smart House’ and thinking how ridiculously crazy all the things the house could do were. 19 years later, and while not every feature of the house has become a reality, the rise of ‘smart house systems’ such as Amazon’s Alexa and Google Home systems mean literally every aspect of our everyday lives are more connected to the internet than ever before.
Let’s use the example of Alexa. Alexa can tell you the weather, place orders for you, connect to Bluetooth devices, set and stop your alarm, look up who’s the actor in that movie, when the movie you want to see is showing next, order you an Uber and the list goes on and on.
While not quite up to the standard of ‘Smart House’s’ self absorbing floors and full holographic screen walls, the advancements made in recent years in terms of the internet of things is remarkable and indicates that maybe one day in the not too distant future, ‘Smart House’ will become a reality.
Catch ya on the flip side,
