The Internet of Things increasingly will become prevalent in the home. You will be more aware of what is going on at any given moment.
And imagine your home being aware of you. Come home and the house greets you as you enter, in a voice and demeanor just the way you like it. Asking how your day went and offering to read your new emails and pass along news headlines.
Even more it knew you were coming and when you were several minutes away it started making you a cup of tea. The temperature of the house was adjusted to be just right at your arrival.
It's not there for the masses yet. But it is coming.
