The Future is Now – Home Smart Home

Marc SaltzmanMarc Saltzman

While we're still a few years away from a robotic housekeeper that can wash our dishes and make our beds, there is a "smart home" revolution taking place right now. From thermostats that automatically adjust temperature based on room occupancy to washing machines that text you when the load is done, smart home tech is saving us time, money, and aggravation. Built into new homes or retrofitted with aftermarket products, there are dozens of examples of affordable tech with smart A.I. driving it. In this conversational yet informative (and media-rich) presentation, technology evangelist Marc Saltzman covers a range of fascinating smart solutions – including voice-activated speakers, 3D printers, augmented and virtual reality, keyless doors, and more – and where we're going in the near future.
