Consumer Electronics Show Highlights: Some Very Needy Appliances

The home of the not-too-distant future will be filled with appliances that want to share stuff with you.

 

The Consumer Electronics Show featured plenty of household gizmos that can hold your attention 24/7.

On display at the event were Wi-Fi-enabled appliances that can be operated remotely and communicate with users. While these high-tech gadgets appear to be both efficient and convenient, they have the potential to be just another digital distraction.

If I lost you, here’s a great example:

The Parrot Flower Power is a smart sensor for your household plants. It’s designed to send you an alert via smartphone or tablet whenever your plant is thirsty, cold, or even lonely (okay, I made the last part up). While I’ll admit this gadget seems awesome, do you really need your houseplant texting you on top of all the other digital messages you get every day? To learn more, check out the video below. Or check out our earlier post on a different version of a plant sensor.
