The future is never far away, and more often than not, it is actually already with us.
We hear much talk these days of The Internet Of Things. There is much talk of fridges that can send a text message when you run low of milk. Central heating systems that switch themselves off when you leave the house (having noticed that your phone has left with you), and contact you while you’re out to ask when you’ll be home so they can warm the house for you ready for your arrival. Maybe even boil the kettle in time for your arrival, assuming you got the message about the milk, of course!!
