Better Living Tomorrow
Panasonic introduces its vision of a lifestyle realizable in the next five years, proposing four living environments - the kitchen, dining room, living room and bedroom - where home interiors and consumer electronics blend in harmony.
The kitchen encourages nutrient rich, healthy eating habits, like having your very own professional chef and nutritionist in your home, with Panasonic’s advanced kitchen appliances and cloud services that make preparing nutritionally-balanced gourmet dishes as simple as a piece of cake.
In addition to Panasonic’s free-style induction hob and cordless kitchen appliances, its new ideas include a built-in food maturing stocker for fermenting and smoking food.
Centering around the Personal Kitchen Screen, demonstrations here introduce how connected home appliances can enrich your eating lifestyle with cloud-based services, such as recommending recipes that match the family’s eating habits.
Here a family is able to enjoy a pleasant time together, full of conversation in a stimulating environment aided by an unobtrusively-designed screen, video and lighting effects and information updates.
The transparent screen is an interactive window that functions as a windowpane when not displaying images.
This novel downlight is similar to a projector and will both light up the table and project images.
In the living room, Panasonic’s audio-visual equipment blends in as part of the interior decor and creates a relaxing atmosphere, whether you are alone or with others.
The smart display automatically changes to the optimum size depending on the information displayed on it.
These speakers are integrated into the carpet. In addition to providing maximum 6.1-channel surround sound perfect for watching movies, they offer control over the reach of sound. The sound can be directed to people who want to listen to it or away from those in the room who may be conversing or reading.
With built-in equipment and services fused with the bedroom environment, the room contributes to the healthy lifestyle of an individual with health and beauty information similar to that given by a professional advisor but in the comfort of your own home.
This mirror with built-in face-recognition technology can recognize physical condition of the person who sits in front of it. The mirror even gives advice about what makeup to wear to match the day’s occasion.
•Your Sleep Manager
To help give you a good night's sleep, Panasonic’s advanced technologies are integrated together, such as sensors, images, air conditioning and sound systems, as well as circadian lighting systems based on human biorhythms that change according to the movement of the sun.
