That is not far off. In fact, it is already HERE!
I was able to see for myself the real possibilities of a truly wired and connected home when I visited the SM Appliance Center at SM Makati where the S-Path, the epitome of a Samsung Convergent ecosystem, was unveiled. Samsung has really been leading the pack in the convergence arena and it will not be long before this will become de facto. Most gadgets and appliances will be "talking" to each other and data/photos will be flying to your family and friends even before they get to see you in person. You can monitor your home remotely, turn appliances on and off before you get home, print documents wirelessly and more. It has already began as we saw with some of Samsung's appliances and devices.
A mock-up of a real home was presented to us at S-Path. We walked through the home office of a ''father, then through the kitchen and dining area where the 'lady of the house' met us, then lastly through the living room where we met the 'son' and his entertainment system.
