In an era that delivers smart appliances that can be programmed to take notes, generate recipe ideas, calculate cooking times and heat food at warp speed, we are always amazed at what manufacturers are able to create to further the technology in the automated home. While many of the innovations have taken place in the kitchen, the bath is getting tech-savvy too.
In the kitchen where the demand for products that speed up the cooking process are created – in the bathroom, it’s all about slowing things down, relaxing and achieving a Zen-like state. Luxury steam shower manufacturer ThermaSol now has a Virtual Spa Attendant which confirms your selections via voice response. This feature now comes with their Serenity Light & Music System as it delivers the ultimate steam shower experience.
When you change a setting or select a new program you now have the option to be notified by your Virtual Spa Attendant. When you are adjusting the temperature of your steam shower, adjusting your music system’s volume, bass, treble, radio station or any other setting, you now have the ability to cycle through these settings with your eyes closed as your Virtual Spa Attendant announces your settings. If you prefer a candle lit steam or having the lights off while you enjoy your color therapy system you will no longer have to worry about turning the lights back on to change your settings as the spa attendant will speak to you to while you adjust your temperature and settings. The Virtual Spa Attendant can also be programmed to give you voice-automated commands like, “Hot steam activated please be seated,” “10 minutes remaining,” or “Steam system is shutting down.”
