In a smart fridge, a large tablet is built into the front panel for creating online shopping lists, watching recipe clips on Deliaonline and leaving notes. There’s also a camera inside the fridge that takes images of the contents, so, if you’re in Waitrose and aren’t sure if you’re running low on milk, you can take a look.
The ipad-controlled coffee-maker lets you preset your favourite morning frothy cup on an app and set it to brew while you’re in the shower. Philips Hue bulbs can be set to flash when a favourite football team scores. Amazon Echo and Google Home are speaker systems that listen and carry out your commands; they’ll give you traffic updates, order an Uber or read out the news headlines as well as operating your smart home dev-ices for you.
