What Are You Waiting For? Even Barbie Has A Smart Home!
Remember when Mattel came out with a WiFi-enabled Barbie that could interact with its owner? Well, it was only a matter of time until Barbie was outfitted with her own smart home to complement her new venture into the IoT.
So, what can Barbie’s Smart Home Do?
Barbie’s smart home allows for kids to use voice commands to control different aspects of her home like lights, appliances, must and even her elevator!
Interacting with the home is a lot like interacting with Amazon’s Echo, in that all you have to do is say things like “turn the bedroom lights on,” or “bring down the elevator,” to trigger your demands.
Fantasy world convenience doesn’t come cheap, though. The Barbie WiFi-enabled smart home costs a whopping $299.
That’s more than our real life Piper smart home security system, which allows you to both secure and automate your home, costs!
Watch the Barbie smart home in action down below:
