iHouse Builds the Better Faucet

Remember that old MGM cartoon "The House of Tomorrow," where we were given a glimpse into the future of the modern household? While it was silly and over-the-top, it got one thing right, today's house is totally different from the appliances of 1949 or even 1990. And thanks to companies like iHouse, the House of Tomorrow is closer to becoming the House of Today.


iHouse's latest product the iHouse SmartFaucet is making bath time a whole lot more convenient and high tech. Besides from allowing running water to flow like regular faucets, the SmartFaucet is equipped with Facial Recognition technology. A little extravagant, but there's a totally good reason. If you stand in front of the SmartFaucet, it will run your bath water at your favorite temperature, ensuring perfect bathwater every time.

In addition to setting water temperature, the SmartFaucet also controls the water flow rate. And while you're enjoying a relaxing soak, you can use the touchscreen on top of the faucet to check out the weather outside and access your calender and emails. Yeah, it's a little gandiose, but it's still a cool preview into how tech will improve even the simplest of appliances.
