This week, I've been thinking a lot about what will change with homes in the future. There is definitely an electric wave coming! In solar power, in electric vehicles, in battery storage, it's happening! I've been posting on FaceBook about some of these items (https://www.facebook.com/BeachMove). Being a techie, I've been particularly fascinated about something called the "Smart Flower".
Here is a link to their website:
This thing sits in your yard, elevates upward, opens itself up when the sun comes up, and tracks the sun across the sky, folding itself up and dropping down at dusk, cleaning itself as it is folding up to maintain the most efficient operation. Wow!
I even e-mailed the company to begin a dialog about them.
I announced to my wife that I wanted to put one of these in the yard and how exciting that would be to have something that opened up like a flower and mimicked nature itself.
She gave me a look that communicated that she was maybe not as enthused as I was and I am not sure we will be installing one any time soon. Nevertheless, what an exciting concept!
