The mirrors in the bathroom display your blood pressure, temperature and weight from sensors in your toothbrush and in the floor. The smart mirror will also remind you when to take medication and will display today's weather. Touch screens are ubiquitous: from a very clever smart board on the kitchen wall to a discrete 2,000-LED display embedded into the kitchen worktop that controls the environment. One notable absence is that of robots of any kind, but perhaps that is by design.
