Smart Appliances: Your Home, Connected

A five-part series about smart appliances and connected homes.

Our homes are at a turning point. We've been obsessed with automating our chores and domestic duties since World War II, and now the age of the smart appliance is finally taking shape.

Connectivity is spreading out from our living rooms and into our laundry rooms and kitchens, and we're beginning to see how it can change our habits and habitats.

Over the next month, will explore the state of smart appliances in the connected home: Where they are now, how they got here, and most importantly, whether they'll earn a place among our smartphones and tablets as an everyday part of our lives. Join us every Monday for a new story.
