Now nearly every household has at least one. In earlier generations, what we now consider everyday items went from luxury to standard equipment: Refrigerators, microwaves, Door Handle, Automatic faucet, Smart Fridge, top-of-the-line, high tech toilet .
With an eye to the next round of gadgets and gizmos, we’ve collected a roundup of items that in 10 years most households may not be able to live without. Which of these gadgets do you think you need right now?
This equipment is pretty standard in public restrooms, but there aren’t many private homes that have the same technology. The automatic faucet contains a sensor that turns on when you’re near or when you tap it. No need to even switch it off; the water will stop running once you leave the room.
Samsung T9000 Smart Fridge
Fridges have a lot of untapped tech potential. Several refrigerator brands have designed their version of the fridge of the future. In addition to just keeping food cold, these self-cleaning refrigerators connect to WiFi so you can manage the food you have in the fridge, keep track of expiration dates or figure out what meals you can put together.
This Samsung model isn't exactly that advanced, includes an LCD screen where homeowners can surf the Internet, manage calendars and even tweet. but it's getting there with a touchscreen window that runs apps like Evernote and Epicurious to help you organize grocery lists and recipes you're tired of keeping in a flammable note card box next to the stove.
