Spring is in the air, at least in the Northern Hemisphere.

The voice-activated design of the Lynx Smart Grill lets you do more grilling from the comfort of your deck chair.  Read More

The SmartMat is a Wi-Fi enabled device designed to fit under a regular doormat

We've got smart doorbells, smart locks and smart door handles, so why not a smart doormat? Dr. Andrew Clark has created just such a device called, surprisingly enough, the SmartMat.
