You know your kids are home because you got a notification on your smartphone from your personal home robot. But wait, your fridge has sent your phone a notification that you’re out of eggs and milk! "Hey Alexa! We need eggs and milk by tonight!” PING, the doorbell rings, 1 hour later, Amazon delivers your order to your doorstep. After dinner, which was cooked in your super smart oven that knows exactly how you like your pizza, your family spends the evening playing augmented reality games (which by the way can teach your kids too, but they still prefer to play!)
