Cell phones, computers and even TVs have all certainly shifted the way we interact with the world, but a display in Richmond is showcasing how technology could change daily life inside the home.
The TELUS “Future Home,” on display now until Thursday, Oct. 11 at Continental Centre, claims to be an “immersive experience” that allows visitors to see how technology can make homes safer, healthier and more efficient.
Included in the experience is facial recognition software, which could be used to allow residents to enter their home instead of using keys, while a SmartHome security system could be placed on doors and garages.
In the kitchen, the Future Home display showcases a smart fridge which helps users plan their meals. A smart cooktop stove can provide step-by-step instructions on cooking.
Other technology included is said to enhance health, home monitoring opportunities and even artwork.
“The Future Home provides a glimpse into the future possibilities that enhance our daily lives and showcases the importance of a PureFibre connection by demonstrating yet-to-be-invented and innovative technologies like smart fridges and stoves and home security which could transform our lives in the years to come,” said a Telus statement.
The display is on now until Oct. 11 at Continental Centre and is open from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. daily.
