Uncommon Control

The ability to command and control a variety of home goods
Implications - Traditionally, items in the home that can be controlled remotely have been limited to stereos, entertainment units and the like. Now, however, a variety of products, ranging from stoves to thermostats, are offering consumers the ability to be controlled from afar -- even out of home. Often designed to be used with a user's mobile, these new and innovative remote-controlled innovations provide sleek design, coupled with function and convenience -- exactly what today's consumers crave.
