What does the home of the future look like? In the garage there might be a charging station for your car. In the kitchen your blender might work without requiring a power cord, deriving power instead from the countertop. And in the living room your windows might tint automatically when the sun hits high noon so that the video on your 104-inch tall screen is crystal clear.
These were some of the up-and-coming technologies demonstrated today at the Future Technology Pavilion at the CEDIA Expo in Indianapolis. The Pavilion, which was designed to resemble a typical home, included innovative products from more than two dozen different manufacturers.
Check out the slideshow for some of the highlights.
