Years ago, smart technology was just a futuristic dream that was seen as science fiction. Now the dream has come into reality, technology is taking control of our daily life. People no longer can live without it because life will be more difficult.

Technology isn’t just about smart phones and laptops; there is no wonder to find invisible tech at homes, places of work, in schools and universities, and nearly every place we go.

Due to the rapid technological growth; almost every single day there is a new innovation coming out.

An example of new technology at homes is the smart home furniture; in the future there will be applications to help you engage with every part of your place from a distance. The lights, TVs, fans, and other devices can be turned on and off with the power of one click via your smart phone or by just the sound of your voice.

Furthermore, there are many times plants die at homes because the owner travels and there is no one taking care of them.                                                                                                                                                              Travelling will not be a trouble anymore thanks technology that offers a “Self watering planter”, you can forget about your plants for a whole month; all you have got to do is to fill the smart pot with water and it will dispense all the water and nutrition needed for the plants.

In addition, taking a bath after a long day will be more interesting and relaxing now on with the smart bathtub and shower control. The first one provides a bath with relaxing music; you can use your own music and enjoy the melodies ruffling through the water. The second device is a ‘thermaSol Micro Touch’ System that sets the heat and steam preferred by the person.


Having children for instance might increase the noise at the house causing headaches for old people and trouble sleeping for others. Swedish designer Johan Kauppi found a solution for that by developing an absorbing furniture called  "Wakufuru" to minimize noise at homes and to make the atmosphere more cozy and relaxing.


No one knows where tech will take us in the coming years; however people and experts are sure that it will make life much easier that it already is now. There are more inventions will be released soon for homes, working places, fitness market, and many other places.
