SPE­CIAL FEA­TURE

A jour­ney into the world of Pana­sonic

The Ideal Home and Garden - - Contents - IM­PRES­SION: RUHI SINGH

From lakes to moun­tains, flo­ras to fau­nas, tem­ples to shrines and most im­por­tantly, an ex­tra­or­di­nary ex­pe­ri­ence of Ja­panese cul­ture. Half of my heart and soul are still thrilled with the scenic beauty of the land of the Ris­ing Sun. As I was brought to ex­pe­ri­ence the much talked about Won­der Life-Box, an area which gives the guests an ad­vanced glimpse of a bet­ter life in the years from 2020 through 2030, it was just ic­ing on the cake. From smart shops to smart homes, the walk through at each stage was worth watch­ing.

Starts with win­dow shop­ping

Named as Won­der Del­ica, the con­cept al­lows an in­di­vid­ual to browse through items present in the store with the help of their smart­phones. And with the ‘Light ID’ tech­nol­ogy, you can sim­ply point your phone to the de­sired items and have them de­liv­ered to your home.

Wel­come home

Let Akari recog­nise your face and the IR sen­sors will au­to­mat­i­cally open the doors to you. Ex­pect­ing few friends in some­time? The gates will open to them au­to­mat­i­cally once you give them ac­cess. You must be won­der­ing about Akari - an ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence (AI) part­ner, Akari or light in Ja­panese is an all-in-one per­sonal as­sis­tant that helps you to tackle with ev­ery­day chores by per­form­ing dif­fer­ent roles such as a stylist, learned cook, house­keeper, etc. As you step in­side the home, the AI sys­tem will clean you us­ing a gush of air wind. The virus sen­sor de­tects pol­luted air in­side and out­side the house and pre­vents the spread of viruses.

Re­laxed Liv­ing Room

This room has a smart serv­ing ta­ble and a glass door wine rack that works as an LED dis­play. To en­joy a lovely evening with some close friends, all you need to do is to pick a bot­tle of your choice and place it on the ta­ble. The LED screen pro­vides data on age of the wine, vine­yards and food pair­ings. Isn’t this a per­fect con­ver­sa­tion starter?

Make Me A Chef

Now that you have de­cided to pre­pare din­ner and sur­prise your fam­ily with their favourite strawberry cake. You need not worry about the bak­ing tech­niques as Akari will help you us­ing the voice in­ter­ac­tion sys­tem. From recipes to dress­ings, your part­ner will en­sure a has­sle free bak­ing job! Well, that’s not the end. You can grow veg­gies in the smart in-built gar­den that is wa­tered au­to­mat­i­cally and uses LED lamps in­stead of sun­light. Trust Akari, place the veg­gies on the kitchen counter, it will dis­play a list of pos­si­ble recipes for you.

A Good Night Sleep

Your day’s work has been com­pleted and its time for a good sleep. Akari un­der­stands your hec­tic sched­ule and as you lie down, the room lights are ad­justed and the ceil­ing dis­plays your heart rate, blood pres­sure and body mass in­dex. Af­ter a re­laxed sleep, the AI part­ner will wake you up with the sound of chirp­ing birds or just by ad­just­ing the lights. The mir­ror will be­gin your morn­ing by analysing your face and in­ter­pret­ing your mood. Akari will also sug­gest make up op­tions and ac­ces­sories co­or­di­nated with your out­fits.
