CES 2011 shows off LG’s eco-friendly network-connected household appliances
Appliances in the future will be a lot smarter and intelligent than they are today, and it isn’t only the living room appliances that we’re talking about. Homes in future will use network connected appliances and gadgets, controlled remotely, with better functionbility, cutting-edge features and energy efficiency. And this year’s CES trade show in Las Vegas will see veils pulled of some of this fresh new technology. Take LG’s line of Thing “smart” appliances for instance, with Wi-Fi connectivity, smart meters and programmable functions that help them diagnose peak hours and adjust energy consumption. Washers, dryers, refrigerators, vacuum cleaners and just about every household appliance with connectivity to network PCs and tablets and smart phones too have shown up at CES 2011.
It’s time for a change, as our homes tilt towards smarter and eco-friendly technology.
