Featured here, in the latest trendhunter mailing. Although the post says it’s about ageing consumers turning to home automation to remove the mental and physical burden of everyday task (more on that here), a lot of the things featured have a strong geeky/DIY flavour. Since most of the ageing consumers I know have trouble with their TV remotes, I can’t see them using configurable lego-like blocks to build their own automation solutions.
