Are holographic butlers a thing yet?

It is unusual to sit back and think back to what your home looked like 10 years ago. You could even conceivably think back 5 years and get similar results. Most homes today are driven by all manner of connected technology. Everything was introduced so seamlessly that most people don’t realize how different their homes are as a result.

Let’s take a look at a few ways that your home has been changed.


Remember the days of having to use the phone to get Internet access? Now, you can pretty much go anywhere you want and connect to the Internet. It is easier than ever to stream movies, make video phone calls, and download large files.

Smart TV

A cable company’s worst nightmare came true! People are able to ditch cable and find more reasonably priced options to view their favorite shows and movies. With a fast Internet connection, you and your family can listen to your favorite tunes or search for the latest movies available to stream right to your TV.


As mentioned above, streaming has become all the rage! You can stream to your cell phone, tablet, laptop, or smart TV, and this has revolutionized the way we view media. Many of the big companies (Netflix, Hulu, and Prime Video) offer their streaming services for low monthly prices where you can view media almost anywhere.

Virtual Assistants

Go in almost any modern home and you’ll now see people talking to a “virtual assistant.” Amazon’s Alexa, Apple’s Siri, and Google Home have become household names all across the world. People can ask for the weather, play music, get a recipe, or have a general conversation with the assistants, not to mention control a myriad of devices.

Many more devices like Smart doorbells, Smart ovens, Smart locks, and Smart vacuum cleaners are also available and utilized in millions of homes to make our lives just a tad bit easier! With how quickly tech has been progressing, it staggers the mind to think of what might come next.
