A journey into the world of Panasonic
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.
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.
