The Smarthydro is slick, Brazilian and smarter than your average Space Shuttle. Controlled by remote control or smartphone, it fills itself, keeps the temperature constant, features a bubble and light show on demand and when you’re done it’ll clean itself at the push of a button. Just about the only thing it won’t do is scrub your back, but that’s probably an upcoming optional extra.
You want to know how slick this product is? Well it’s even got its own technical support crew, waiting at the other end of a connection to leap into action if anything should go wrong. Go wrong. Go wrong. Of course, if you have to ask you won’t be able to afford it, but let’s just say you could probably buy a very nice car or two, for the price. Check out the interactive demo here.
iHouse’s intelligent bathtub can be activated from the Internet or from a remote control beside the bed or on the wall (the Smartcontrol). When the user connects to Smarthydro from the Web, he or she can configure his or her bath according to personal preferences and can at once see the same control panel which is installed in the apartment on his or her cell phone, PC or Pocket PC screen. With this feature, the user can monitor the water temperature, define lighting conditions and also set bath conditions for one or two people, all in real-time and online.
