If you have a smartphone, all the information in the world is at your fingertips. You can surf the web to find answers to daily questions, or get a front row seat to the lives of your friends and family through social media. Everything we encounter is becoming more and more connected as time moves on, so it only makes sense that we’re going to see our homes become as intelligent as our phones.
There are a lot of things we keep track of in our day-to-day lives. Our focus has shifted so far away from caring about our own bodies and minds that we need activity trackers to keep us in check. While some may use them for fitness purposes, there are those that just need a little help figuring out why they’re having trouble sleeping. If you’ve ever wanted to use a tracker for your sleep, then you know how uncomfortable it can be to put something on just before you go to bed.
If you care about how clean your home is, you’ve likely heard the name Dyson before. This company is best known for creating expensive vacuums (they’re completely worth the money) that will never lose suction. Of course, there comes a time in every company’s life where they must expand to new territories, like that of the Roomba.
We’ve all seen movies in which a family or person gets a well-meaning robot that is brought in to ease the burden of living. They clean, cook, and eventually freak out, trying to kill or maim the people around them. We’ve seen this happen so many times in movies and shows that the idea of having a robot butler is sort of scary.
Every day seems to stitch tighter and tighter together schedule-wise. We have less time to relax, and have to find solace in little moments throughout the day. Sometimes, the daily rituals we do are enough to calm our minds, and help us wake up or go to sleep. While coffee is known to be a big part of our mornings, it also plays a role in our evenings as well since we have to set up the coffeemaker for the next day.
Many things can affect our mood, but when you want to calm down, smell, sound, and what you see can play major roles in that situation. When we’re trying to have a relaxing evening, we normally try to put on calming music, dim the lights, and light scented candles. It doesn’t always work, but why not give it a shot, right?
We all want to be more efficient and cut down on electric bills, but many of the “solutions” that have come up are often expensive (its takes money to save money, right?). However, not all of us are so well off that we can toss hundreds or thousands at new energy management systems. For those of us just scraping by, spending a little and saving a lot is the only way things can be done.
We were always informed in movies and shows that we’re not supposed to press the big red button. Things will blow up, disintegrate, release airlocks, and a variety of other dreadful results. What if once, just once, you could not only have your very own big red button to press, but everything it did could have positive results?
There was a time where people used to sleep according to when the sun was up or down. While that was a long, long time ago, it is nice to wake up gradually with light rather than all at once. The same goes for getting ready to sleep. You don’t have any time to adjust your eyes to the difference, and are blind for the first five minutes of darkness.
