Wink is the name of a connected home app that helps coordinate hi-tech household items. Often bought separately as people become more attuned to convenient living thanks to the immeasurable help of the Internet, a truly connected home is currently something that only exists in fantasy realms such as depicted in 'The Jetsons.' Yet Ben Kaufman, the mastermind behind Wink, designs a connected home in New York City to demonstrate what it would be like to live in one.

Promoting the capabilities of Wink, the connected home is operated through the smartphone app. Wired writes, "The goal, Kaufman says, is to finally make the connected home truly connected. And on Monday, Wink took another step in this direction, launching 60 Wink-enabled products from 15 different manufacturers to 2,000 Home Depot stores across the country."
