It was only last month when we posted about how you can now send text messages to your appliances – your washing machine, fridge, oven and vacuum cleaners. Following from this, a recent study by Havas Media has looked into consumers attitudes when it comes to consumer items that are connected by technology.
More than half of all participants, aged 15-49 were fully aware of what a technology connected product is and over a third of them would be ready to use them.
Participants were asked to rate a variety of technology connected products. The most rated were cars (61%) followed by watches (49%), fridges (48%), glasses (38%), pens (36%), bracelets (35%) and clothing (32%). Some of those surveyed even suggested that the focus should be on shoes, toothbrushes and even forks!
At Esendex we’ve seen some interesting tech connections – but not just in products! Anemon Swiss System is a sensor that is located on the body of the cow. This sends an SMS message about the cow’s temperature – indicating when the cow is most fertile!
Technology connected products will undoubtedly continue to grow in the months and years to come. We can’t wait to see what the future holds!
