Watch out for a new marketing buzz phrase – Ambient Intelligence. I think it’s a makeover of the old ‘ubiquitous computing’ concept which did the rounds a while ago.

Anyhoo, the clever peeps at Philips have taken it to their hearts and are talking about all sorts of technology for the home which will deliver this Amb. Int. Like toothbrushes that know when they’re being used by a child and project an encouraging cartoon on the mirror to get them to brush more

..or a jukebox that will interpret whatever a user hums and locate the song to play from a digital audio archive (pictured above).
