Are We Really Forgetting Women In The Smart Home Of The Future? Research Suggests That Our Tech May Be Missing A Vital Female Component.
Smart devices using a variety of technology can make our life easier. They help us control our lights, temperature, and so on – all remotely. Our robot vacuums assist us in cleaning the house. They also offer us the convenience of managing day to day activities and the ability to share and sync all the family members’ schedules. A recent research wonders if the smart tech may be forgetting an important female component.
