So this is really exciting. The next big thing companies are pushing for is to introduce more home automation devices. If you don’t know what I mean, take a second and look up the Nest thermostat or the Phillips Hue lighting system. The lighting system is pretty sweet….with an app on your device, you can control the light bulbs color, brightness, and turn them on and off.
Apple and google have been in talks with a company who specializes in this type of technology, which means it may start showing up in future devices. How awesome would it be to be able to control the lights in each room with your phone. Think of it like AirPlay….but for more than just watching movies and listening to your shitty Ke$ha music on your 5.1.
