The Mr Coffee iPhone 10 Cup Smart Optimal Brew coffee maker is an incredibly futuristic device enabling you to brew a cuppa from your phone. When it’s ready, then you can get up and collect it from the coffee machine. It saves you vital seconds, and means you don’t have to expend extra energy and time waiting around for the kettle to boil. It is quite simply brilliant.

2. SmartThings

This free app will enable you to control mood lighting, music, coffee machines, home cinema settings and all sorts of truly exciting home automation things. You do however need the SmartThings Home Starter Kit if you want to actually make use of it.

The SmartThings Home Starter Kit will make everything in your home super cool and super controlled! This is my favourite top accessory. It’s a little pricey at $199 but in the grand scheme of things, that’s nothing on what it would have cost for this type of tech in the 80’s! It is incredibly awesome! You can automate everything from lights to music to mood settings, and heating from the touch of your iPad or iPhone.

3. Remote

If you already subscribe to Netflix then you should definitely get the free Netflix app. It makes it so much easier to switch to viewing something on your iPad or Mac instead of the TV if you decide you want to get cosied up in bed. Thanks to iCloud, it enables you to view Netflix across any and all of your devices.
