The smart-house is possible. To be honest, it has been for the last year or two. If you have a nice chunk of disposable income and are a gigantic tech nerd, you can wire your up all of your lights, utilities, entertainment systems and media players together into one glorious WiFi connected network. Take that, Jetsons!
Unfortunately, smart-homes aren't very practical for anyone outside of wealthy nerds right now. Marvell aims to change that though, with their new Plug Computer 3.0. This machine is the hub of an always-on, always connected turnkey platform. It has embedded WiFi, Bluetooth, and a built-in hard-drive. The Plug Computer is intended to act as the command post for a smarthome, remotely controlling lights, thermostat, and other systems.The PC 3.0 sports a 2 GHz processor but uses very little power. That is crucial since this is an always-on device. Low power consumption makes it that much more affordable. Plug Computer kits will be available soon from a variety of vendors, including Globalscale Technologies and Universal Scientific Industries Co. It will be unveiled for the first time at CES 2010.
