I saw a documentary once that suggested science fiction drives science fact. It sparks the imagination in a future generation of potential scientists to ask the question, why not? So in honor of Marty and Docs travels through time, I thought I’d bring you a selection of items that you may have had no idea you could put in your home right now.
Steam Convection / Combi Ovens:
The technology has existed in commercial kitchens for years. Reheating items in a microwave just dries them out. Toasting them in an oven makes them hard. However, take a little bit of oven technology and introduce some steam in the reheat cycle and presto – last night’s leftovers are as fresh as when they came out of the oven the first time. Seems like science fiction right? Not at all. Such devices are available from manufacturers such as Jennair, Bosch, Thermador, Wolf, and Miele to name a few. In almost all of these you can Bake, Broil, Roast, Dehydrate, Steam, and of course Reheat.
A Faucet With A Remote Control:
Certain companies have been promoting their touchless sensor faucet technology lately designed for ease of access. The trouble with these technologies is that they were adapted from their commercial cousins and they don’t always adapt well to residential use, but before KWC, a swiss company, developed the ONO touch light PRO, people that wanted a sanitary or wheelchair accessible option had no choice but to settle for lesser faucets. I’ll just let the video do the talking.
A Sauna In Your Shower:
For those that don’t know, a sauna is a dry heat, and usually it’s own room, sometimes it’s own building, when installed in a home, so putting one in your shower would seem next to impossible. That is until Bain Ultra came out with the Vedana Care Unit. Not only does it provide heat therapy from the convenience of your shower, but it plays music and provides a soothing chromatherapy as well.
A Wall Oven With An Android Operating System:
That’s right, you can crush candy right on your oven. Or more importantly control you oven from your smart phone. The Discovery IQ Wall Oven from Dacor hooks wirelessly to your home’s internet signal All of it designed to make your cooking experience that much simpler, that much more productive, and that much more enjoyable. This is another you have to see to believe.
