Dyson’s 1000£ Airblade Tap
After revolutionizing the vacuum cleaner, Dyson has turned the simple washing tap into a technological marvel. Their Airblade Tap system is the latest in cutting edge household appliance technology. With a development cost of 26.9 million pounds you have got to expect something brilliant. And brilliant it is.
Using an infrared system, the tap tracks the position of your hands. Then it fires water at your hands from its central prongs. When your hands are rinsed and soap free, drying mode begins. The two prongs at the sides dry your hands using high velocity sheets of air. Your hands are dry of water in about 12 seconds. Great isn’t it!

The timing option on the hue can wake you up better than an alarm clock. You can also simulate the morning sunrise using the hue. Getting up is more fun with this amazing gadget.
The Hue can be used to recreate special moments from life. You can paint your environment any color you like with the Hue. The wireless lights can be switched on and off remotely. Set the lights to turn on at a particular time. All the health and wellness benefits of light are yours with the Hue. Hue accomplishes all this with ease and so much more. It’s truly household appliances at their best.
Other Great Household Appliances
The LG Thinq, like its name, thinks. It lets you know energy consumption on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. You can access the data
on tablet PC’s and smartphones. The Geospring from GE uses energy based on peak cost timings and reduces energy usage by about 80 percent. Newer models of washing machines inform you by SMS when your clothes are dry or when your fridge gets knocked out.
The Coolvox from Whirlpool turns the fridge into a music player using an app. LG, not to be left behind is now offering technology that allows users to control vacuum cleaners and washers by voice commands sent through the smartphone. Also you can check what kind of food is in your fridge from a remote location.
Not just this, now your fridge can inform you when you are running low on milk. Washing machines can wash clothes at the cheapest time of day. Imagine a fridge that communicates with you via email and SMS. Yes, it’s happening! These appliances are now being dubbed as “smart appliances” and are about 50 to 100 percent more expensive than conventional appliances.
So now that these are here, what do we look out for in the near future? Look out for a communications platform that integrates your computer, TV, stereo with your kitchen and washing appliance. Streamlined jet age accessories and appliances are here as well. The future is here and the beyond is coming. Life is better and science fiction is so true!
