Housewares is not a consumer category that screams for technology, but sometimes a company breaks through with design that stands out for both form and function. Recently a company called Simple Human planted its flag in the housewares section. Their slogan is, “we design tools that help people become more efficient at home.”
With well thought out garbage cans, auto dispensing liquid soap machines, and the best personal makeup mirror in the market, they are the leader in blending technology with the every day tools of the kitchen and bathroom. My favorite is their makeup mirror. With LED lighting that can be set via your phone to mimic lighting conditions of an office or a restaurant, a woman (excuse the transition) or a man, can see how their face looks under the varied light conditions of the day or evening.
Sadly I need something that does not exactly replicate the middle age face I’ve caught staring at me some mornings, but that may be a technology too far away!
