Nanotechnology and the Kitchen & Bath of Tomorrow

Abstract:
Jack Uldrich: An article on how the emerging field of nanotechnology will affect the future of kitchen and bath design might lead a person to conjure up futuristic imagines of Jetson-like rooms where refrigerators communicate wirelessly with sensor-embedded milk cartons and then transmit that information to an all-knowing computer which determines if it is necessary to order another carton from the store that offers the lowest price.

Such a future is, in fact, technologically feasible. It is not, however, likely to occur anytime soon. The future of kitchens and baths is, perhaps unfortunately, going to be a little less sexy.
