The future is now and it has never been so full of potential and surprises. The incursion of tech in our homes is on a rapid rise with home automation, integrated security and sensor-based lighting becoming more and more commonplace. With that in mind, let’s take a look at four tech innovations guiding us into the future.
Skip the curtains and get smart with glass: Enjoy the glorious sunlight without compromising on your privacy with smart glass. The glass changes from clear to translucent, partially blocking the sun’s rays when an electrical charge energises special materials inside the glass. Need complete darkness? Your smart glass can completely block out the light without cutting out the view from outside. You can even hook it up to your home automation system to automatically switch on during the hottest parts of the day to reduce your energy bills.
Lighting goes digital: Feeling blue? A cheery yellow light is sure to cheer you! In the mood to party? How about a rocking purple hue? Digital lighting can make all this and more possible. All you need to do is press a button and you can pick the colour and brightness of your light. Now that’s what we call personalised living!
Where did the TV go?: Nowhere, it just went transparent! Combining conventional LCD and the latest TOLED display technology, the transparent TV is surely the latest in viewing technology. No more fretting about letting your precious wallpaper or exclusive painting job going to waste behind a conventional TV, your transparent TV ensures that you can enjoy your daily news without compromise.
Music to your ears: Love a little music while you soak away your stress? Or a little hydrotherapy? Futuristic bath technologies allow you to control every aspect of your bathing experience. From music to temperature to pressure and specialised spa therapies, everything can be personalised to your needs.
Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the best dressed of them all? Go home ordinary mirrors, the smart mirror is here to stay! Forget fretting over what to wear, your smart mirror can compile the entirety of your wardrobe and virtually dress you to help you pick your outfit of the day.
The home of the future holds many possibilities, time to seek them out and enjoy them to the fullest. After all, the future is best enjoyed in the present!
