Automating Your Home
Making Life a Little Easier
It's been a few years since the Disney Channel premiered their original movie 'Smart House' back in 1999. Katie Sagal played the artificial intelligence named 'Pat' who could operate every part of the house, from the lights to the alarm system. She even remotely controlled a ball that would entertain your dog. If you wanted, Pat would even make you a smoothie. 14 years ago the idea seemed pretty far-fetched, and the reality of such technology was years off. But advances have brought us closer to a real, working Pat than you might realize.
