We asked professional designers to imagine the future of household gadgetry
THE KNOW-IT-ALL FRIDGE
Internal cameras could track food levels and auto-generate grocery lists, says Robert Brunner, founder of Ammunition design group.
THE INTUITIVE THERMOSTAT
A wearable device could tell your thermostat why you’re hot (exercise? Fever?) so it adjusts accordingly, says Travis Bogard, Jawbone’s vice president of product management and strategy.
THE DIET DOT
A micro-wearable could gauge your diet by tracking your sweat and recommend healthy lifestyle changes, says Radek Tadajewski, CEO of smart-home startup Oort.
