Hi, Matthias Brendler here, transdisciplinary designer blogging what's interesting or significant relating to: Design, Education, Culture, Technology and Business (as well as anything that's really cool).

Say hello to the next home automation standard: Wi-Fi — Mobile Technology News

Belkin WeMo


Using a ubiquitous wireless standard is huge, assuming it works; the first products don’t arrive until March, so I haven’t tested them. A $49 outlet and $99 motion detector with outlet will be the first WeMo offerings, and you just plug in any electrical device you want to control to the WeMo product. The devices can then be controlled with a free smartphone app.
