I think I found my new dream gadget. It’s the life|ware digital & home automation control. It controls practically everything in a home which can be the music, lighting, thermostat, television, kitchen appliances, security system, or anything else for that matter. Homes of the future will have a digital network that controls everything and that technology is available today with this product. It makes the Jetsons look ancient.
The controls can be integrated through any device with a Windows Vista Media Center operating system which includes televisions or personal computer. The Life|point Touch Screen Controller is another option that can integrate into your home like any light switch. It’ll just look way cooler.
Disney integrated Life|ware technology into the new House of the Future attraction at Disneyland which is scheduled to open this month. It is ironic that it integrates technologies that are available today.
I’m not too sure of the pricing, but I’m sure it’s not cheap and only the finest new homes will have this technology for the time being. All I know is I want one.
