The future kitchen will have appliances that follow one another like we do on social networks…SmartToasters and Multi-TouchFridges communicate with digital pantries to keep things in stock and even place orders with local grocers. Recipe apps query the DigitalPantry and adjusts the shopping list accordingly. Some of these things are already here but there isn’t a universal platform where they can all communicate with one another yet. The digital language hasn’t been established yet but it’s coming much like Ethernet and Token Ring from years ago. The HomeNetwork could tie it all together… not just inside the home but also with the outside world such as the grocery store.
