LG is looking to launch a techy air-conditioner which isn’t just NFC compatible but also takes voice commands.
According to tech guys as Engadget, the Whisen unit is reportedly the first to directly take voice commands from as far as 16 feet away, letting us cool things down without having to leave our chairs.
The AC system is uncommonly aware of the mobile world, as well. Tap an NFC-capable smartphone like the Optimus G on a programmed NFC tag and LG’s Whisen App 3.0 will automatically adjust the temperature, on top of more conventional remote control. We are not saying that a remote won’t come with this unit, it will, but we can tweak the temperature via our handset too.
There is another feature that is coming with Whisen, its very own built-in camera with mobile viewing. Yes folks, it can double as a not-so-subtle security system while we’re away at work.
We don’t know when this techy cooler will be launched but LG is looking at South Korea and a time between now until end of March.
