downloadYou wake to the sound of your smartphone, which has assessed the correct time for you to start your day by monitoring your circadian rhythm. You then jump in your smart shower, which already knows the water temperature you like, and can also sense when you’re washing your hair, to ensure the correct water pressure comes out.

Once out of the shower, you put on your smartwatch which instantly starts to count each beat my heart makes. You walk downstairs to your kitchen feeling perfectly warm because your smart thermostat has memorized the room temperature you feel most comfortable with. Finally, you pick up a freshly brewed coffee from your smart coffee machine, which knows exactly when to turn on, based on when you wake up. We have entered the realm of omnipresent smart technology.
