The Hacker's Guide To Smart Yards [Interactive]

popsci.com — Smart energy is about more than what device you use; it's about how you use it. Soon, you'll be able to program your home to draw from personal solar and wind systems whenever they're producing electricity. The dark side of a yard is the upkeep. These tools will help you take back your weekends.

These Absurd Robots Do Pointless Jobs

popsci.com — One day, robots will most likely take on many of our most mundane chores. No more folding of laundry or washing of dishes. But until that day comes, we'll have to settle for ones that take on less-necessary duties. These three ridiculous machines are masters of their utterly odd jobs.

How Mountain View-Based Startup Veniam Is Putting Wi-fi On Wheels

fastcoexist.com — The reasons to love public Wi-Fi are many: downloads go faster than on cellular networks, it's cheap to set up, and it's free to use. Too often, however, it's also spotty: strong in one place, weak in another.

Make Your Home Smarter, Step 5

Make Your Home Smarter, Step 3

popsci.com — All smart thermostats share a common goal: save money while staying comfortable. An Internet connection allows them to adjust the indoor temperature based on outdoor conditions--some even factor in humidity. But the best way for a home to adapt to its residents is still up for debate.

Make Your Home Smarter, Step 1

popsci.com — Different products can cause chaos when they don't communicate. So choose a platform that uses a networking hub or an app (or both) to marry disparate devices and give your house a centralized brain from the get go. Most WeMo devices can connect to an app right out of the box, no tinkering required.

The Hacker's Guide To Smart Homes

popsci.com — Sure, we've heard a lot about smart homes and how they're the wave of the future. Yet that future has always seemed just over the horizon. But now several home-automation platforms have emerged that give Internet-connected devices--gizmos like lightbulbs, outlets, thermostats, and motion sensors--something they lacked: the ability to communicate with one another.

Make Your Home Smarter, Step 2

popsci.com — The core of a smart home is the ability to monitor and remotely control power, lighting, and security. That means replacing--or upgrading--everyday household fixtures, such as outlets and bulbs, and installing environmental sensors that will let you monitor what happens around the house.

Make Your Home Smarter, Step 4: Automate

popsci.com — After setup, you can teach the smart home to think for itself, freeing you from using an app every time you want to change the temperature or turn on the lights. That means creating automated actions; because each platform can talk to all the gadgets you have online, they can suggest scenarios and guide you through the setup process.

3 Things You Probably Didn't Know A Printer Could Do

popsci.com — Printing on paper is so last millennium. To give inkjet and 3D printers new purpose, makers swap out components like extruders and motors, program them with modified code, or both. The hacked machines can do just about anything.
