The Birth of
Your Personal Digitally Connected World
The birth of the personal digitally connected world is at hand.
Imagine new products that perform tasks for you automatically after they learn your likes and dislikes. The future is here and new consumer products introduced at this year’s CES are ready to automatically control:
||Thermostats that automatically build a temperature schedule for your home. They know when you are home and reduce heating and cooling when you are away.
||Your doors, lights, appliances, security system, etc all ready to take your commands through Near Field Communications (NFC). When you are not home your smartphone can still automatically give commands or you can take command from anywhere in the world.
||Digitally empowered appliances that email to you shopping lists and let you call in what you want them to do..
||Wearable tech that helps you stay fit, take videos and photos, and will show you messages while your smartphone is safely tucked away from prying eyes.
||Cars that will watch the road for you or never require you to stop at a gas station again.
