If you could create a dream product, what would it be? A completely smart networked home. From the computer at the office, the PDA at a friend's house, or the computer in your car, you could tap into your house and get a visual representation of every device. From a remote location, you could tell your coffee machine to brew a cup of joe, tell your bath to fill up, tell your heater to heat or your AC to cool, turn the lights on or off, and so on.
