Google introduced an exciting new technology available to all Android devices. This technology Google named Android@Home will allow your phone to operate the major appliances in your home with the simple touch of a button. Why get up to turn off the lights when you can easily do it from your phone?
Lighting Science Group is currently creating wireless LED light bulbs that will be compatible with the Android. The company expects the product to be ready by the end of this year.
Installed in your appliances and light bulbs, Android@Home technology will wirelessly communicate with your Android similar to how a Bluetooth device connects to your phone. Users will easily be able to start a load of laundry, run the dishwasher and water the lawn among other things.
Appliances not connected to Wi-Fi like a refrigerator can still benefit from this innovative technology. Google already has plans to connect any device that uses electricity. The next time you run out of milk, your Android-powered refrigerator can send you a message when your phones GPS picks up that you're at the grocery store.
"Everything should be Android-ified," said Andy Rubin, head of Android, during a conversation with reporters. "We should just take it to new levels. It's no longer something that people will go to the store to buy and then bring to their home or bring to their office. It's something that will actually bridge those things."
