Intelligent Toilets and Bad Milk

CES 2018

It's that time of the year when we realize we were promised Rosie the robot and flying cars by now, and still haven't gotten them.  It's the Consumer Electronics Show. CES 2018 is ending and let's take a look at a few of the items we can look forward to in 2018

APPLIANCES

With a double tap of the 29 inch screen on the new LG refrigerator, you can stare into the contents of your $4400 fridge and determine there isn't anything to snack on without having to open the door, but that's not all.  It will let you know when the milk, or any other food, is going bad, provided of course you put in the expiration dates. If I'm too lazy to open the door, I'm not sure that's going to happen, but we'll see.  So now that we've determined there's nothing to eat, don't worry Alexa is built in, just add it to the shopping list.

What?  The wash is done?  Yes, it seems that now your washer and dryer can send you an annoying text message right in the middle of HQ Trivia to let you know your underwear is dry.  In fact, just about everything in the kitchen can tell you what's going on.  Your oven is pre-heated, the popcorn is ready, and the dishes are clean. Did I mention that all of these smart appliances talk to each other also?  Yes, not scary at all. I don't think I'm hungry anymore.

BATHROOM

Bathrooms are still pretty dumb. Honestly, little has advanced since Roman times in bathroom tech, but that's about to change.  We have reached the era of the intelligent toilet. If the term "intelligent toilet" is a little unnerving to you as it is to me, you'll be good with it when you learn IT CLEANS ITSELF! Yes, the Toto Neorest 750 Intelligent toilet can do a lot of things nobody cares about but it also can clean itself. Now if I could just remember where I left the remote to the toilet.  Dang it.

Want that shower nice and steamy warm, waiting for you. "Jeeves! I'm ready for my shower." Don't have a butler to draw your bath for you? No worries, just ask Alexa to do it. With the "U by Moen" smart showers, Alexa can start your shower and set it to your perfect temperature. Alexa, close your eyes, I'm getting in the shower.

Here at Property Sprocket we can't wait to list a home and be able to say, "This home has a stunning intelligent bathroom, and an incredible kitchen with state of the art appliances that might talk about you behind your back."
