CES teaser from Qualcomm shows you the house of the future, powered by mobile devices
Just a few days away from the kickoff of CES 2015, Qualcomm has dropped a video teaser showing how the Internet of Everything will run your house in the future. Driven by notifications sent to mobile devices (good to see that the Nokia Lumia 1020 is still around in the future), homeowners will have a handle on the amount of water that is being used, be told that their meds are ready to be taken, and receive an alert about the laundry. The future also apparently includes receiving reminders about leaving the hot water on.

The teaser's tag line, "Smart mobile technologies for secure, connected devices" reminds us what butters Qualcomm's bread. Speaking of mobile, last week the company showed off a Snapdragon 800 powered handset that will be introduced next week in Las Vegas. As we pointed out, with rear controls on board, this looks to be an LG produced model, possibly the LG G Flex 2.

As mobile continues to thrive, so will Qualcomm. The chipmaker will most likely continue to focus on the mobile connection to the Internet of Everything during CES. Speaking of CES, keep your eyes right here for the latest breaking news and video from Las Vegas.

Maybe we're just too conservative but I can't help but think this stuff looks silly.

yup that means we will become more like robots .. this ad is scary as hell.. the couples are so involved in their mobiles, and notifications that they didn't even look at each other.. its like they are brainless zombies ruled by technology.. if an adult needs to be reminded about closing the water tap ,putting clothes in dryer , then its better to be dead than to live .. do they have to be notified about having *** as well ?
