For those of you that don't know, a 13-year-old boy wins a prize of a computerized home aka "The House of the Future." Mind you, this was 1999.
Things start out great for the family having extra help around the house. But things quickly turn for the worse as the house gets a little too controlling and ends up going on lock-down. (Kind of like when you enter the wrong passcode too many times on your iPhone.)
Fortunately the creator was able to reboot the house and, like all Disney stories, they lived happily ever after...
I think this movie had quite the impact on many people, because who wouldn't want a "Smart House?" Of course, I mean, without the the whole scary lock-down thing.
I think we can all agree it would be nice to have an extra hand around the house. A Smart Home may just be the trick! According to a recent story from NBCNews, Smart Homes may not be as far into the future as we thought.
"Apple is reportedly about to enter the world of “smart home” technology in a big way. According to the Financial Times, Apple is positioning the iPhone as a remote control for home automation, allowing you to turn on the lights, adjust the heat and control appliances with the device."
This could definitely change the way people will use their smart phones and it could bring on a whole new meaning to smartphone.
