Already available in Japan and the US, this kit of app-enabled smart sensors allows ordinary objects to become part of a home network, thus turning them into connected devices that can be linked to Google Home or Amazon Echo.

Sony Mobile is doing pretty well lately, and it already started to explore new areas of the market that show potential. One of these areas involves smart home appliances and devices, and Sony's solution is simply called MESH. The MESH wireless tags connect via Bluetooth or WiFi and can link to home gadgets like WeMo, Nest, Amazon Echo, or apps like Gmail or Twitter.

The idea behind this project is to turn non-smart appliances and various everyday objects into connected devices by using MESH wireless tags. The official description reads the following: "MESH is a kit of app-enabled smart sensors that makes it simple for anyone to transform ordinary objects into smart devices."

The MESH DIY kit with a wireless button, an accelerometer, three sensors, a GPIO, and an LED can be pre-ordered for €299 EUR. However, there are also three offerings consisting of ten MESH DIU kits each that go for €2,699 EUR. These top-of-the-line deals also come with a Skype meeting with the MESH team.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
