Smart Hydro “Intelligent” Bath Tub

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on May 9th, 2011

The Smart Hydro looks like an ordinary bathtub, but it has two transparent walls made from a highly-resistant glass, some aluminum handrails, and a very advanced control system. This means that you can set the exact temperature of the water, and it will alert you when the temperature has been reached. Your tub can’t do that.

There’s also a Keep Warm function that will keep the water temperature at a constant level. Other features include a self-cleaning system and even several connectivity options. You can activate its functions from your smartphone and monitor the water’s temperature in real time if you are on your way home and want a bath ready. No word on pricing yet.

Intelligent Cutlery does more then just stab, scoop & cutIf you figured your kitchen utensils were safe from a tech upgrade, you were wrong. The IC3 concept would give your cutlery a computerized body able to hold three interchangeable eating tools: fork, spoon and knife.

The fork wont just stab blindly, it will also analyze the composition of the food, reporting details on fat, protein, and sugars. The spoon will measure weight with the knife acting as a thermometer. All of this information will be compiled into a detailed report so that you know exactly what you’re eating. Screw that. Who wants some nanny telling them what’s good for them. These utensils can go fork themselves.

The intelligent First Aid kit
First Aid kits are a must to have handy. You never know when you might be on the scene at an accident. But how many of us know how to properly use the supplies inside? Soon, you’ll have a little help. This kit will have individually wrapped medical supplies and more importantly, step-by-step audio instructions that will help you treat many injuries.

The idea is to help people with little or no first aid training. Not only do you have audio aid, but color-coding of packages and illustrations help you get the job done. It will cost $130 and each kit will come with a flashlight.
