In the home, you may not always go around with the cell phone in his pocket, and even if you do, it is particularly well suited as a voice assistant with his tiny speakers and weak microphone.

That's what Amazon was thinking, and developed the Echo, and what Google has envisioned when the company now presents the Google Home. Google Home is a small cylinder you can place on the kitchen counter, for example, and then faithfully wait for you to say Ok, Google and ask something. You will be able to do the same things you can do with a mobile phone, as controlling music playback and various smart home products, search the web, set alarms and timers, and add things on the shopping list.

The 9D television developed by the University of SussexMatt BurgessStaff WriterFollow @mattburgess1A prism sprays small bursts of smelly vapour towards the nose while pulses of air are fired at the hand to tease the senses: this is '9D' television.On screen, when Baymax – the animated inflatable star of Big Hero 6 – springs a leak, air is pulsed from a haptic device onto the palm of the viewer.In the microgravity of Interstellar, a sharp burst of air hits the hand at the precise moment a small asteroid crashes into Matthew McConaughey's spacecraft.Similar technology is already breaking into other forms of entertainment; touch feedback is being developed for gaming and smells can already be sent via mobile phone.Television systems of the future could put the watcher in the driving seat of a car chase, where every bump in the road is felt, or transmit the smells from the kitchen of a cookery show.But transmitted feelings are limited by the hand having to be kept above the haptic interface.
At its core it's a simple recipe - water, milk, tea, and spices - but the preparation process can be a chore.Coffee machines that foam milk are designed to take it to around 65-degrees, far less than what real chai requires.The brewing process is similar to a super-automatic coffee machine.Since every family has its own favorite chai recipe, however, you're also free to add your own spices and extras.Chime has had prototypes in a number of offices - including with Google and Adobe - and Chawla says the feedback has been strongly positive.Chawla expects offices to be a particularly strong market, where basically Chime has no automated competition for chai.
