It feels like, with every passing month, we get a glimpse of what it’s like to be a Jetson. Technology just keeps getting smarter, making this glimpse of the future, a reality and more interesting! As a result, even the most basic things we use on a day-to-day basis have become pretty advanced. It was just a few years ago that voice assistants like Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant weren’t common things to have in your home, and now apps and voice assistants can control everything from your lightbulbs to your refrigerator. Your mornings can be transformed by a clever machine that remembers just how you like your coffee. You can talk to your microwave and control your blender from your phone, and it’s not weird. (Okay, it’s a little weird.) Even your beloved Instant Pot is—or at least can be—smarter than you think.
